One of the biggest things I love about this recipe is I use melted butter. Whenever my chocolate chip cookie craving hits I want one NOW...not in an hour when the butter has softened. I know you can do it in the microwave, but my recipes never worked out when I did it that way. I'm not sure if it was just the butter or something else, I just know it's always seems to be a safe bet when I wait it out.
this post). By the time that's all done it's softened enough.
2 Cups flour
1 box french vanilla pudding mix
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 Cup butter, melted
4 oz (1/2 block) cream cheese, softened
1 Cup packed brown sugar
1/2 Cup sugar
1 T vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
1 Cup milk chocolate chips
1 Cup semisweet chocolate chips
Coarse Sea Salt for topping
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line your baking sheets with a mat or parchment paper.
In a medium bowl mix together the flour, pudding mix, baking soda and salt. In your mixer beat together the butter, cream cheese, sugars and vanilla until combined. Add in the egg until fully incorporated, then the yolk.
Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir in chips with a wooden spoon. Drop tablespoon size balls onto the sheets and bake for 13-15 minutes, or until edges start to brown. Remove and sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Allow to cool on the sheet a good amount of time before moving them to a wire rack. Pour a tall glass of milk and enjoy!
My resolution this year is to cut out fast food almost entirely from our lives. It's one of those things that always sounds good, but then I eat it and regret it. Since I don't eat it often, my stomach gets very upset with me. I know at times it will be hard, especially when we travel, but that will just help me start planning ahead more. Got any resolutions of your own? Love to hear them!
Thanks for stopping by!
