Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Literally the best chocolate chip cookies here!!!  There’s not much more that I love to do than whip up a new batch of cookies. I’ve done recipes for “one” cookie before, but these are a bit tweaked and are my favorite yet! Crispy edges with gooey soft centers. That’s always what I look for in a cookie. Oh and packed with chocolate chips, ha! Hope you enjoy this one!

Bake this baby for a good 15-18 minutes. 15 minutes will leave you with a gooey soft center. 18 minutes will be a little more cooked through if that’s your fancy 🙂

    This cookie looks like the best idea. But I don’t think I’ll share (since I don’t have to). : ) Definitely trying this next time I have a night to myself!

    Susan says:

    This looks delicious! Is the pudding mix absolutely necessary or can it be replaced with something else? It’s not something I ever have on hand.

    Shari says:

    this looks amazing. I am wondering about the pudding mix as well. It’s not something I ever buy. Is there a sub?

    jenn says:

    Thus looked really good but when I made it I followed directions exactly and it turned out horrible more like cake batter than cookie dough

    fatema says:

    Sonali says:

    Looks delicious! I like the addition of vanilla pudding mix, I think it adds a little something extra. I do want to caution you, however, against recommending that people eat the whole cookie in one sitting as it amounts to 1,039 calories. That’s half the average adult’s daily allowance
