  • 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 2.9 oz packet instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
  • In medium bowl, combine flour, pudding mix, baking soda, and salt.
  • Whisk together to combine.
  • In large bowl with electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, and then add the vanilla, beating until combined.
  • Gradually add in flour mixture, beating until combined.
  • Finally, stir in chocolate chips with wooden spoon.
  • Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, place dough balls onto prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake at 8 to 10 minutes. I found the perfect baking time for my oven was 9 minutes to get that lightly brown edge.
