Joe’s Joyful Chocolate Chip Cookies

Decided to try something different this morning for Dessert while Laura was at work as a special treat for her!  She was going through Pinterest the other day salivating over all the chocolate chip cookie recipes so I decided to make her a big batch!  I played with one of her favorite recipes but gave it a bit of a twist and this is the result!  I call them: 

Joe’s Joyful Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here is the recipe if you would like to bake your own!

2-1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
¼ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 package (3-1/2 ounces) chocolate instant pudding
2 eggs
1 package (12 ounces) semisweet mini chocolate chips

Combine flour and baking soda; set aside. Combine butter, sugars, vanilla and pudding mix in large mixer bowl; beat until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs; gradually add flour mixture. Stir in mini chocolate chips (batter will be stiff). Drop by a teaspoonful, about 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake at 375º for 12 minutes, or until browned. Press down lightly to flatten cookie and leave rest on hot cookie sheet 5 minutes before removing to serving container or plate!

Enjoy!

Yield: 4 dozen cookies

Well I have my Bride’s Seal of Approval, she said Mmmmmmmm,
