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.
