the hubs is on a business trip which means no cooking for me!!! but i thought i would share my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (thanks michelle).
Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup butter flavor shortening
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 large package of instant vanilla pudding
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Combine butter, shortening and sugars until light and creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Add pudding and remaining dry ingreients, mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoon full onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
Very very yummy. My favorite way to eat chocolate chip cookies is to bake them just enough so that the edges hold up the "warm cookie dough" in the middle and then a big glass of ice cold milk. These cookies don't really brown so just take them out at 10 minutes, unless you are a wierdo and like your cookies well done.
