As you all know, I am a chocoholic. A big one. I've given up chocolate for Lent this year and let me just tell you that I think I have done a pretty amazing job of not eating (that much) chocolate these last four million days of Lent. I have cheated, I won't lie, BUT I've only done so maybe five times. That is AMAZING for me, chocoholic extraordinaire. Well, there are only six days left until Easter, so....hmmm...I made some Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies. My friend over at Novelstyle Blog just had to make cookies tonight and temp me with their yummy deliciousness. So, of course, I just HAD to make some cookies for myself!
I found the original recipe for the Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies at MommySavers, but of course I couldn't just make the recipe as written, I had to adjust it to the contents of my pantry (a.k.a. my tiny little cabinet with all of my baking stuff in it). I would like to try making them again in the future, but this time with chocolate pudding!
Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1 package instant vanilla pudding
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup Whole Rye Flour
1 cup White Flour
1 tsp. baking soda
In a mixing bowl, cream together sugars, butter, vanilla extract, and
vanilla pudding mix. Beat until creamy. Add eggs. Add dry ingredients
and stir until well-combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Bake at 375
degrees (190C) for 10-12 minutes. Makes approximately 4 dozen cookies.
**I made two dozen cookies and then put the remaining dough into the refrigerator to use later.
