THE BEST EVER chocolate chip cookies!

                    HELLO, AND WELCOME TO MY BLOG!

I've posted my ultimate go-to recipe as my first blog post. When my co-workers see me coming in to work with my big Tupperware® storage container (see picture), I immediately have people hovering over me searching out these amazing cookies!  I tend to bring these as treats to work most often as they travel quite well during my two hour commute in to work – they don’t need refrigeration on the way like, say, éclairs would.  Darn it, now I’m craving éclairs...  :o)


Yield:     6 dozen
Prep Time:    15 Min
Cook Time:    13 Min

4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1-1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 (3.4 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups milk chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Set aside.
  3.  In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar.
  4.  Beat in the instant pudding mix until blended.
  5. Add the eggs and vanilla and blend until smooth.
  6. Gradually blend in the flour mixture.
  7. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  8. Form the dough into balls using about 1 1/2 tbsp of dough for each cookie (or use an OXO Good Scoops Medium Cookie scoop).
  9. Place about 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  10. Bake for 13 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
