White Chocolate Chip Cookies


Do you like cookies??  I certainly do, and I LOVE white chocolate!

This recipe just JUMPED out me because it has an unusual ingredient- instant vanilla pudding!  While cruising the internet one day, I ran into Janelle’s BLOG and found this recipe.  I love Janelle’s heart and that she likes to cook for others- I certainly can relate to that! (My college son loved these cookies when I sent them in a care package!)  I tweaked her recipe just a little and it has become a family favorite!

Here are the ingredients:  (scroll down to see printable recipe)


Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.


Add butter, white & brown sugar, instant vanilla pudding and vanilla extract to a large mixing bowl.  Mix well.


Add the eggs…


Add the dry ingredients.


Mix well, then add the white chocolate chips.  Don’t worry, the dough is very sticky.


Use a medium scoop to place on cookie sheets.  Aren’t they so cute!  Yes, I wanted to eat the dough!!


They baked in the oven for 15 minutes at 375 degrees.  Here’s what they look like coming out of the oven! Let them sit for 2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.


Store them in an airtight container when they’re cooled!
