Vanilla Pudding Chocolate Cookies


1 cup unsalted butter, melted, cooled
1 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
102 g box instant vanilla pudding mix
2 tbsp milk
2 large eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp each: baking powder, baking soda
2 cups milk chocolate chips

In large mixing bowl, using wooden spoon, mix butter and sugars until creamy. Stir in pudding mix and milk, then eggs and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda; stir until batter is smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop batter by heaping tablespoonsful on non-stick cookie sheets (about 12 per sheet). Bake, in batches, in preheated 350F oven 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 10 minutes on cookie sheet. Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool completely. Store in airtight container.
Makes about 36.

Andrea Duguay and daughter Sarah McCaughern of Milton won first place at Canada's Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Contest at the Good Food Festival. Milk chocolate chips were a hit with the judges. Instant vanilla pudding mix is an unusual addition.

My mother-in-law made awesome Chocolate Chip cookies from a secret recipe she saved from the early 60's.

They were a BIG hit with the grand kids and my hubby would eat them straight from the freezer where I was unable to hide them!

She did say that PUDDING MIX is what makes all the difference. Thanks for reuniting me with a WINNER!
