Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've been on the lookout for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. When the activity day girls brought these by my house, I was pretty sure I had found it. This is Leslie's recipe, but I don't think she even knows I tracked it down. Thanks, Leslie! Now I just have to get mine to look as pretty as hers did. She claims the secret is to undercook them - and the pudding.

I also have another chocolate chip cookie recipe to post, so watch for that to come in the next few days.

Have a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe? I'd love you to email me or post it in the comments.

1 1/2 c. butter or margarine softened
1 c. firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
3 eggs
1 pkg. (6 serving size) Jello Brand Vanilla instant pudding mix
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 1/2 c. flour
3/4 pkg. Guitard milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 c. chopped nuts optional

Mix flour with baking soda. Combine butter, sugars, pudding mix, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl; beat until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs. Gradually add flour mix then stir in chips. Batter should be stiff, if not you may want to add a bit more flour. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Makes about 4 dozen.

I love this recipe, and I'm glad it only uses 3/4 of a package of Guittard chips. What to do with the other 1/4.... hmmmm....

I stumbled upon your site and I have to say it's now my favorite. Thanks for sharing your passion. I made these cookies with my kids and got TONS of praise. My 8 y/o said, "I sure hope I can remember this recipe when I'm a mom.."
