Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies


4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 (3.4 oz.) packages dry instant vanilla pudding powder (no milk added, only dry mix!)
4 eggs
2 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


Sift flour, soda, baking powder, and salt together. Cream well butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat pudding powder into butter mixture until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla and blend well. Stir into the flour mixture. Add chocolate chips and mix well. Drop by rounded spoonful onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Edges should be golden brown.

Note: These are my very favorite and way better than any bought cookies.....packaged or from a bakery!
