Chocoholics Anonymous-I know I've said this before.....

But, I think I may have found my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.(at least for this week)

It's soft yet crispy, loaded with chocolate chips, and has a surprising twist.

I got the recipe from a mom at ballet. She's quite the chocolate chip cookie lover I found out, they bake these babies every Sunday! I was shocked that they made them every Sunday, but after downing a few this morning for breakfast, I now understand why. I could make them a weekly ritual myself.

It's funny how very small the world really is. My sister's aunt in-law Lori goes to church with cookie Lori (yes, two Lori's) and cookie Lori also lives next door to Duane's oncologist(whom we loved). Aunt in-law Lori was talking about cookie Lori at Easter dinner and these fabulous cookies made their way into our conversation, so when I was at ballet last week cookie Lori(who has the recipe perfectly memorized), jotted it down and the rest is history. *Did you just follow that or did I just sound like an airhead?*

Lori's Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 c softened butter

3/4 c brown sugar

1/4 c sugar

2 eggs

1 t vanilla

1 small package vanilla instant pudding

2 1/4 c flour

1 t soda

1 t salt

12 oz chocolate chips ( I used a bag and a half)

Cream your butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time then add vanilla extract and vanilla pudding. Lastly add in flour, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips. Spoon onto baking sheets and bake at 375 for 9-11 min.

No fancy steps, sifting, nothing really difficult. Lori says no matter how you make them they turn out the same delicious cookie every time. I love them, I'm sold. But I'm sure next week I will have cheated on them and found a new love. Just call me a cookie floozy.

Oooohhh, I am a cookie floozy too! LOL I am going to try this recipe, I wonder how they will be lightened (as in splenda for the sugar, and some lowfat butter?) what do you think fellow floozy?

Thanks! I'm due a week from tomorrow, May 25th. I hope he decides to come on his own, because if he doesn't, my doctor wants to induce me on May 26th for low amniotic fluid. Take care, those cookies look divine!

These sound sooo good! We love our chocolate chip cookies around here. I've found that the recipes I have that involve adding instant pudding in the mix are always delish! Can't wait to try these. Miss you guys...

Great post. And yes, I followed the whole Lori thing just fine, but that may be because I'm as "looney" as you may be. ha.
Another cookie. I'm bummed if this dethrones mine. jk
I'm always looking for the next best ccc. I like this pudding recipe. I've made it many times.
But beware if you keep checking my blog, I'm about to try two other recipes for ccc's soon! We'll see!
Love it--cookie floozy!
