Perfect Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

It’s no secret I am obsessed with baking cookies…practically on a daily basis, ha! Had to share my favorite recipe for a classic chocolate chip cookie. Buttery edges with soft chewy centers. Can’t beat these.

I also made my first official video!! Added it to my You Tube channel which is pretty much non-existent but gotta start sometime right? I’ve been dragging my feet for a couple years and finally put my big girl pants on and learned something new. Video! Hope you enjoy, I’ll be incorporating more video with my recipes, should be a fun new challenge for me. Hope you’ll enjoy them!

I could stare at these all day. Perfection my friends. Try them for yourself.

    These look great! When the snow has cleared I’m going to the store. Could you please tell me where you get your your instant vanilla pudding powder? Is it from a box of the pudding, or can it be found in bulk?

      Hi Cheryl, it’s found in the baking isle, usually right by the cake mixes. It is from a box, not sure if you can get it in bulk unless you check on Amazon.

    I’m from Canada and we don’t have sticks of butter, so what is the measurement, 1/2 -3/4 or 1 cup. Thanks, plan on giving these a try.

    These look fabulous!!! I was wondering if you used regular chocolate chips or mini. In the picture/video the chips look small. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

    Your video showed 1/2 the recipe but you used a full egg. I followed the recipe and they seemed dry/crumbly. Should I have used 1 more egg? Thanks
