Here it is........the best chocolate chip cookies on earth.
You will need:
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup shortening
1 (4 ounce) package of instant vanilla pudding
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 package semi-sweet chocolate chunks
1/2 package milk chocolate chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a separate bowl, mix together flour and baking soda. Add a pinch of salt.
2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, shortening, pudding mix, and butter.
3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating in between. Beat dough on medium speed for about a minute. Next, add the flour mixture, about 1/3 at a time. Beat until dough is uniform looking and fluffy.
I used about half of each of these bags. I find the semi-sweet a little too bitter by themselves, and the milk a little too sweet...so I like a little of both. You can use whatever you want though!
