Award Winning Chocolate Chip Cookies
I found this cookie recipe on one of the blogs I follow last week, Hello Miss Chelsea. I bookmarked it, saving it for a time of need. Well, that time is now! I have to make cookies for the Great American Teach In at my school, I figured I can't go wrong with chocolate chip. She found the recipe from All Recipes and I have to agree with the title. They are one of the best chocolate chip cookies I've made. Enjoy!
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 (3.4 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups chopped walnuts (optional- I left these out)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 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 two boxes of instant pudding mix until blended. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Edges should be golden brown.
