A Twist to the Classic Chocolate Chip

I had to make my girls some cookies. They have been very patient, eating all these grown up type desserts! It was time for a classic!

I know everyone has there favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and you probably have seen a million of them. This one is a little different than the rest. It adds instant pudding to the mix. The result are awesome. It is a nice chewy chocolate chip cookie with some body to it. The recipe is from Allrecipes. The recipe has almost a perfect score with 4,261 people giving their two cents, I think that is a pretty high approval rating. The Presidential candidates should be so lucky!

I love to see recipe reviews, I like to try recipes that have lots of reviews cause you know it's gotta be good. I've heard of chocolate chip cookies like this w/ pudding but never tried them, I will now! Thanks Lori!

Those ccc's do look good and I like the sound of using the pudding in them.
