My husband loves the cake mix cookies I make so much, that I thought it would be a good idea to try out pudding cookies. Well, he loved them even more, he said they had a fudgey consistency and taste to them. Unfortunately I waited to long to try one and they were all gone, in a matter of about 3 days, so they are good, and slightly addictive. They also whip up quickly, and only take about 30 minutes to bake the entire batch of dough, about 3 dozen cookies. So, go bake yourself up a batch now, and please be nice and share with others, unlike my husband ;)
1 c (2 sticks) unsalted softened Butter
1 c Brown Sugar
1 tsp Baking Soda
2 pkg Royal Chocolate Pudding (or 1 pkg Jello Pudding, about 4 oz)
2 c Flour (I use unbleached)
1 c Chocolate Chips (I use White)
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.) Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add pudding mix(es), and mix well. Add eggs 1 at a time mixing well after each addition. Add baking soda and flour, and mix until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
3.) Drop tablespoons of dough onto cookie sheet 2" apart. Bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until edges are browned and middles are set.
4.) Cool cookies on trays 2 minutes, and then remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store in airtight container. Makes about 3 dozen cookies, which do freeze well.
