Mmmmm, it smells so good in here, well here at my place. I just toasted the coconut that I'll use later for Coconut meringues.
Here's an old recipe that I have probably baked thousands from.
Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies
2 1/4 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar (I like the dark brown for more flavor)
1 package (4-serving size) Jell-o instant pudding mix (I like to use chocolate fudge or French vanilla) whatever floats your boat
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 package (12 oz) chocolate chips
1 cup nuts (optional)
Mix flour with baking soda. Combine butterm the sugars, pudding mix and vanilla in large mixer bowl; beat until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs. Gradually add flour mixture, then stir in chips and nuts. (Batter will be stiff). At this point you can refrigerate or drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
Makes about 4 dozen.
I usually double this recipe. These have a nice cake like texture and freeze very well.
Have fun and be creative!
