Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe comes from Heidi (Tried-and-True Cooking with Heidi)--I saw it on her blog last month and have been itching to try these cookies! Never before had I heard of adding pudding mix to cookies, but you would not believe how much of a difference it makes!!! As Heidi mentions on her blog, they are soft, but not "cakey"--definitely worth trying!!! I'd be shocked if these cookies last much more than a few days around here!

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together the flour and baking soda, set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat in the instant pudding mix until blended. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips. Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Edges should be golden brown. Makes 4 dozen

***Also, Happy Nurse's Day to any fellow nurses out there!*** My husband surprised me this afternoon with a card, balloon and some beautiful flowers...VERY sweet! My little guy wanted me to take a picture of him with the balloon :)
