Just a Saturday with nothing to do but the usual laundry, cleaning and then baking cookies because you feel like it.
I'll let you in on a little secret about me. I like doing laundry - really.
Turning those piles of dirty clothes on the floor into clean, nicely folded stacks is relaxing for me.
Weird I know.
Anyway, I felt the urge to bake something. Usually when I bake chocolate chip cookies I use my whole wheat recipe, but today I decided to do something different and I really liked how they turned out. Thick, chewy and full of chocolate. Yum!
Special Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies
recipe from V and Company
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt (I only used 1/2 tsp)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 small package of instant vanilla pudding (3.4oz size)
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 pkg. chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place your butter, baking soda, salt, brown sugar, vanilla pudding, vanilla extract and eggs into a large bowl and mix until creamy. Gradually add the flour and mix until combined. Add chocolate chips.
I use my small Pampered Chef scoop to place the dough onto my silpat-lined cookie sheets.
Bake for 9-11 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Or burn your mouth eating one or two right away, which I may or may not have done :) Enjoy!
