Every Christmas I make yummy treats for our co-workers. I usually plan at the beginning of December what I’ll be making, but then change my mind at least twice before I actually start making the goods. The one thing that doesn’t change is the chocolate chip cookies.
I found this recipe on the Kraft Foods recipe website a long time ago, probably back in 2005, when I just graduated from college and finally had my own apartment that had an oven. I love soft chocolate chip cookies and this recipe intrigued me because it uses instant pudding mix in it. I tried it and this has been my go to recipe ever since. The only thing that I’ve changed is that I stick the uncooked dough in the fridge for a couple of hours before baking, this guarantees a soft cookie and prettier cookie as well. I use the dough base all the time and change up the chocolate chips from time to time. I found some pretty red and green swirl chips at the store and used them for these particular cookie.
