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 love these cupcakes! They have been on my to try list forever and I think that maybe today might be the day I finally try them.

    Also, I didn’t even realize you had less swirls, shows how well I know a hostess cupcake!

    I made them this weekend and am now officially addicted to the filling – it reminds me of marshmallow creme! Although my cupcakes (and pictures) pale in comparison to your version, I need to thank you once again for supplying me with a great recipe.

    I searched all over for a recipe like this and didn’t want to use marshmallow creme for the filling! These are amazing- my family was fighting over them. Thanks for sharing!

    so in your recipe you say to put the batter into the wells of a muffin tin coated with non-stick spray. Does that mean not use cupcake liners, or does that mean to spray the liners with non-stick spray?

    Sorry, I’ll fix the recipe. You don’t need to spray the cupcake liners.
