Chocolate Chip Cookie with Vanilla Pudding
this recipe has an unusual ingredient in it...vanilla pudding. i think it keeps the cookie moist and almost doughy! it is crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, which makes a nice combination. of course they freeze well, which is great for kids lunches. i feel like a squirrel getting ready for winter, i'm storing cookies and they are storing nuts. enjoy this cookie and thanks for visiting!
