I just made those. For absolutely no reason other than my son is napping and I was looking for something to do. You know, besides paying bills or folding laundry or running on the treadmill. (Okay that's not fair, now I'm leading you to believe that running on the treadmill is something I might actually do when in reality, I have never, ever run on our treadmill. Ever.)
These are cookies with a package of vanilla pudding mix in the dough. Oh. My. They are so good. The dough sort of tasted like a white cake batter and yes, I eat a lot of dough when I bake cookies and no, I am not worried about raw eggs. You should make these, right now, for no reason at all. Go put your kids or husband or boss down for a nap.
Pudding Chip Cookies
Recipe from Nestle Toll House
(Makes 2 dozen cookies)
1 cup flour
1 pkg. (4 serving size) instant vanilla, butterscotch or chocolate pudding mix (I used vanilla)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 large egg
1 large egg white
2 cups (12 oz pkg) semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. In a small bowl, combine flour and pudding mix. Make sure to keep your monitor nearby, because remember, your son is sleeping.
Beat butter until soft, about 30 seconds. Add brown sugar and baking soda and mix until smooth. Add egg and egg white and again, mix until smooth. Gradually add flour/pudding combo and combine. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop dough by spoonful onto baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Actually my oven took 7 minutes and 20 seconds exactly, but my oven is hot.
Now, will someone please tell me what to do with these? "Eating them all" is not an acceptable answer. Although it is a likely scenario.
