PERFECT CHOCOLATE CHIP PUDDING COOKIES
Whenever I see a recipe with an unusual ingredient, I get excited. I had these cookies at a party and they were so good that I hunted down the person who brought them, to see if she would share the recipe. I got this recipe, and I was surprised to see vanilla pudding on the list of ingredients. The vanilla pudding is a secret weapon that cuts out a few steps and keeps these cookies soft for days.
These cookies were fantastic at the party, but I learned some other cool things about them when I made them at home. First, they are so easy to make! Don’t you just love an easy, delicious recipe? In fact, the hardest part of this recipe is remembering to get butter out of the refrigerator to soften.
Also, the other big bonus with these cookies is that they stay soft for days, I mean really soft, like they were just baked.
Finally, these cookies are perfect for everyday or a special occasion. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper, or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and pudding. Use a whisk and give the dry ingredients a stir, to break up any clumps.
In separate large bowl, cream together soft butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla.
Add eggs one at a time. Mix well between each egg.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture.
Mix well and then stir in chocolate chips.
Use a spoon or an ice cream scoop, to scoop out cookie dough, about 2 inches apart.
