My name is Rachel and I'm so excited to be sharing one of my most coveted and beloved cookie recipes to Simply Vicky readers. Cookies are one of my favorite recipes to experiment with. They are quick, easy, and the variations are endless! Despite the fact that my pinterest "Cookies" board is multiplying with recipes to test (I recently found this - amazing idea!), I find myself making these Chocolate Chip Pudding cookies at least once a week . Sometimes I'll whip these up just to indulge in the cookie dough (it's not unusual for my husband to come home from work to find me watching my dvr'd shows from the kitchen counter while spooning cookie dough out of a mixing bowl...), but I tell you that they are worth the self control to wait for them to bake the mere 10 minutes!
As an avid reader of food blogs, I'm a bit ashamed to admit that this recipe comes from my old source for baking recipes, the NestleTollhouse website. However, I must give credit where it's due because I have seen countless versions of the chocolate chip pudding cookie recipe, and this one is still my favorite. I have simple requirements for my chocolate chip cookies- soft, chewy, thick. These fit the bill. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do! if you find yourself loving them, then be sure to bake yourself some of the amazing adaptations out there such as chocolate pudding mix w/ peanut butter chips or banana pudding mix with chocolate chips.
