Have you ever seen those recipes that say something about a "secret ingredient" or "you won't believe what ingredient makes these cookies the best?" Yes? I have too. And guess what! Most of the time, that secret ingredient is pudding. I don't know...that doesn't seem so secret to me; especially when the secret ingredient is always pudding. (Ok, so not ALWAYS...but most of the time.) I actually made my own pudding cookies many years ago, but that's not the recipe I'll share today. Today's recipe comes from a new site for me, I heart naptime. K and I made these a few Sundays ago...we seem to be developing a Sunday afternoon baking ritual after she's taken a nap and I get home from boot camp while Daddy keeps napping. Fun girl time. And I do love baking with this beautiful sweetie!
1 cup margarine (or butter) softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
3.4 oz pkg sugar free instant butterscotch pudding mix
2 eggs (at room temp)
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Stir in pudding mix (dry) and vanilla. Beat in one egg at a time. In
a separate bowl mix together flour, baking soda and baking powder. Then
slowly stir into the wet ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips. Spoon cookie dough onto the baking sheet/stone. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!
