Chocolate Pudding Cookies

These are my new favorite cookies.  I've made them several times in the last few months.  I love cookies that have pudding mix in them.  Especially these chocolate chip cookies with vanilla pudding in them.

I posted a while ago about these Death By Chocolate Chocolate cookies that I made using the recipe from Stephanie's Kitchen.  Then I tried these chocolate cookies from Picky Palate (without the marshmallows and pb chips).  I love both these cookie recipes, so I combined them and made up my own version.

Chocolate Pudding Cookies
recipe adapted by me from Stephanie's Kitchen and Picky Palate

1 1/2 cubes butter (3/4 c.)
1/2 c. granulated sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
2 1/4 c. flour
4 oz. box instant chocolate pudding mix
2 c. chocolate chips (I use a mix of milk chocolate, semi-sweet and white chocolate chips)

Cream butter and sugar.  Mix in eggs and vanilla.  In separate bowl mix dry ingredients (baking soda, salt, flour, pudding mix), then add to butter mixture.  Mix in chocolate chips.

Scoop with small ice cream scoop onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
