Cookie Wednesday: Pudding Cookies

If you follow the blog it should come as no surprise that my favorite cookie is a chocolate chip cookie. I've made so many varieties of this cookie classic and I find it hard to resist trying out a new recipe. I came across this recipe on Nestle's website and was intrigued by the addition of pudding mix. The cookie was really, really good. I went with vanilla pudding mix and the cookie had an unmistakable vanilla flavor. I find that chocolate chip cookies usually have more of a brown sugar/butterscotch flavor but not these cookies. They are also the chewiest chocolate chip cookies I have ever had. They reminded me a lot of Entemmann's chocolate chip cookies.

You got me with the Entemmann's! I've never made cookies with pudding mix so these have me very intrigued. Especially with all that vanilla flavor. Can't wait to try.
