(sorry, my food photography skills are sorely lacking, so there’s no artsy aspect to this photo)
The other day, Michelle at Scribbit had two chocolate cookie recipes on her blog, and invited folks to try them both and vote between them. I’m not a huge cookie fan, so I passed. But curiosity got the best of me, and I went back to see which cookies were winning. It was close. And then, in the comments, I found a recipe that was just different enough that it made me want to try it myself. What was intriguing? Well, instead of cocoa powder, the recipe called for chocolate pudding mix to make it chocolaty. “Hey,” I thought, “I like pudding!” So last night, Maya and I made some chocolate pudding cookies. Really, really easy, and really yummy, too!
The recipe came from Erin. Thanks, Erin!
Chocolate Pudding Cookies
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 small package chocolate instant pudding (you can use chocolate fudge instead; it makes it more rich)
12 oz chocolate chips
Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes
Michelle, I hope you’re not mad that I didn’t try one of yours…it was the pudding that made me do it!
