New favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe

I’ve always been very loyal to the Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. Everytime I make them, it reminds me of the Friends episode when Monica makes like 30 batches of cookies to try to match the taste of Pheobe’s grandmother’s secret recipe. Then Pheobe says that her grandmother’s name is Nessley Toolhause. It’s quite funny, as most Friends episodes are.

I thought I’d give this recipe a try since it gets rave reviews on the WC board. Hubby and I both agree that these are our new favorite chocolate chip cookies recipe. They’re so soft and just perfect. We both took some to work and everyone else agreed that they were great.

Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies (makes ~3.5 dozen)Original recipe from Joelen
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour - I use King Arthurs White Whole Wheat Flour 1 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cups packed brown sugar - I use Splenda Brown Sugar Baking Mix
1/4 cup white sugar
1 (3.4 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix - I used French Vanilla
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips - I used 3/4 cup chocolate and 3/4 cup of the chocolate/carmel swirl 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.

    I’ll have to try these. I’ve always been a fan of the Nestle Tollhouse recipe, though I substitute Ghiarardelli double chocolate chips (I think they’re now called 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips) for the Nestle’s. I highly recommend them!

    Hi,
    I found your post on the Chocolate Chip Cookie Debate, pt. 1. My roommate uses vanilla pudding in her cookies, and they do have this wonderful extra flavor, creamy, almost eggy… I can’t quite describe it, but I love it!

    So I was sitting here, trying to figure out how in the world you got your cookies to look so cakey and awesome. Mine turned out really flat and crispy. Surely the butterscotch pudding mix I used doesn’t make THAT big of difference from the vanilla…

    That’s when I realized. I only put 1 1/4 cups of flour in. Wow. Maybe I should pay attention to what I’m doing haha! Aside from my idiocy, this recipe was so simple, and I think the butterscotch is a good choice (even if I can’t taste them in full glory). I will make these again!

    That’s funny Haley. Good luck if you make them again.
