The Fastest, Best tasting, Soft Cookie EVER

I have to agree! I love me some cookies. They are fast and tasty and hit the spot. 

Cookie exchanges are always a neat way to taste and get new ideas. Now if you are one of those who we STILL LOVE but bring store bought cookies these cookies are goof proof and taste like you spent all day making them. These lovelies have a very impressive homemade quality.

Ok enough of the jibber jabber already crazy lady just share the recipe so we can make, bake and eat one!!!!

Recipe for The best soft cookies.

This recipe makes a TON of cookies. The exact amount is determined by how much dough you scoop.

2 packages of instant pudding mix 

vanilla pudding is pretty much a win all the time but if you want to make chocolate cookies use chocolate. You can use pretty much any flavor of pudding and mix and match the chips to create a masterpiece!

2 cups sugar  

 4 eggs 

 2 tsp. vanilla

2 tsp. Baking soda 

24 oz. chocolate chips or whatever chips you like. 24 oz is about two packages

We used the holiday chocolate chip mix for the holidays but you could mix in regular with holiday colored sprinkles too. 

4 1/2 cups flour (all purpose)

4 sticks of butter

 um yeah butter. You could use 1 cup shortening and 1 cup butter but the butter adds a special silky depth that makes these cookies addictive. 

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Cream your butter and sugar and eggs until fluffy. In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, & pudding mix) . Mix the dry and wet ingredients (eggs, sugar and butter) with the dry. Fold in the chips. 

Scoop out some dough, roll into a ball with your hand. If you want big cookies use more dough if you want a two bite cookie use dough ball the size of a walnut.

Bake on a greased or lined cookie sheet for no longer than 9 to 10 minutes. Once they are removed from the oven allow them to sit on the cookie sheet for at least one minute before removing to the cooling rack. 

The cookies will be very soft and fragile. As they cool they become more solid. Store in an airtight container, but I prefer to keep mine in my TUMMY!


Happy holidays!!!!
