Yummy moist and crispy chocolate chip cookies

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!  



Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup and 2 tbs brown sugar
1 cup and 2 tbs white sugar
3 sticks of unsalted butter
1 large pkg vanilla instant pudding mix
3 eggs
4 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
18 oz chocolate chips
nuts (optional)

Cream sugars and butter; add pudding mix and 1/2 tsp vanilla.  Add eggs.  Stir in dry ingredients.  Fold in chips and nuts.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.  Bake at 375 degrees for 11-12 minutes.  Cool on sheets 5 mins or more and then transfer to cooling racks to cool completely.




Speaking of Autumn and storing nuts and cookies...




i came across these while hiking this morning...Acorn Woodpeckers will store their nuts in trees for the winter!!  my friend elisabeth took the photo for me!
