Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These may well be the best chocolate chip cookies ever! I love soft cookies, and these ones stay that way thanks to a secret ingredient… vanilla pudding mix! They got rave reviews!



  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the flour and baking soda, set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat in the instant pudding mix until blended. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips. Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Edges should be golden brown.

*The recipe says 10 to 12 minutes, but I only baked mine for about 9 minutes (granted I am at high altitude). Please keep in mind that these cookies will not look done when you take them out. I just waited until I started to see a light browning on the edge of the cookie, and they were perfect!
