PUDDING CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
Are you visiting friends or family today? Are you hosting a get-together yourself? Are you planning on simply unplugging and lounging out in your backyard? Whatever your plans, I hope your day will be full of laughter, good company and great food.
Throw these cookies in! They are worth it! Easy to make and oh-so-good! No refrigeration of the dough needed. Let the kids make them! Just like I did with these.
This is the last CCC Monday. At least in the continuous series. If I happen to find another chocolate chip cookie ( or maybe you have one you would like to see here ) – the series will be back.
I wanted to include the pudding version for two reasons: I was really curious to see how adding pudding to cookie dough affects the texture of the cookies; I have been noticing more and more recipes for pudding cookies. Which means there are a lot of flavor possibilities out there. Pistachio pudding cookies anyone?
Anyways, the addition of pudding makes the cookies have more pronounced vanilla flavor (especially if you use the French Vanilla pudding mix). It makes them soft and thick. We liked it. Especially our kids.
