So all my life, I’ve made flat but tastey chocolate chip cookies…and I always wondered how women got their cookies to be fluffy and soft and chewy…and now I know! I made Janelle’s recipe this week and they came out gorgeous! She used an ingredient in her cookies I’ve never tried before – check it out!

On my list of favorite things to eat, ever…. stands the good ole fashioned chocolate chip cookie. Who can resist these hot, buttery, gooey, chocolatey little dollops of goodness?! The only thing is…many of us don’t know how to make them just so! In fact, it took me years to figure out exactly what to do to make them crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside, dense, buttery and fluffy!
Some of my failed attempts had my cookies flat..burnt..too gooey…not buttery enough..and the list goes on. Learn from my mistakes and begin your cookie making journey with a winning recipe you will make over and over again!!!!
|Mix together 1 cup butter (2 refrigerated sticks put in the microwave for 20 seconds) , 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 box of vanilla instant pudding dry mix (this is the ingredient I’ve never tried before!)|
|Mix these ingredients well with a hand held mixer|
|Add 2 eggs (I was doubling this recipe that is why you see more than 2 eggs)|
|In a separate bowl combine 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp salt. By combining these dry ingredients, it will help distribute them evenly in the cookie dough. Add them to the wet ingredients. Then add 12 oz of semi-sweet chocolate chips. You may also add nuts if you desire!|
|After the dough is made, place it in the refrigerator for 1 hour…this is an important step! Then, scoop in heaping Tbsps onto un-greased cookie sheet and bake in a 375 oven for 10-12 mins or until golden.|
|After the cookies are taken out of the oven, keep them on the cookie sheet for about 2 mins..they will continue to cook and will keep their shape better this way.|
|This guy is ready to be “spatulaed” onto a wire cooling rack.|
|Let cool on wire rack…grab some milk and a smile and enjoy your perfect chocolate chip cookie! Congratulations, you have made some happy campers!
