Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

I didn’t think I would like these cookies. My kids were asking for some chocolate chip cookies, and wanting to experiment with a new recipe, I found these over at Two Peas and Their Pod.
No offense to Maria at all, she has some of the most amazing cookie recipes, but when you have a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (like I do here), it’s hard to imagine enjoying anything else.
But these are really very good. Moist with a hint of the vanilla.


 I should have doubled the recipe though, 3 dozen cookies just isn’t enough for my brood and their friends! Looks like I’ll be making another batch!

I did stick two cookies away for myself to enjoy. And then forgot about them for 3 days. Guess what? These were still so moist. I am going to try to put some vanilla pudding in my regular, favorite cookie recipe and see what happens!

    funny that 3 dozen cookies went like hotcakes for you…that’s funny b/c most of the time I try to halve recipes b/c I want variety, not 3 or 4 dozen of one thing. Pudding cookies are so good and I’ve always eyed Maria’s, too!

      Haha, with 4 kids in the house and all their friends a batch of cookies just never lasts around here! I probably bake cookies 3 times a week!
