Chocolate Chip Cookies (CCC 7)

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies | Kitchen Gidget

The Chocolate Chip Cookie Quest continues! It’s been a while since I’ve tried a new CCC recipe, but I’m always looking for one which can top the current favorite–CCC2. This recipe is definitely in the top 3 (CCC 3 is also outstanding) and comes from cookie guru Averie of Averie Cooks.

This particular recipe uses instant pudding mix to give it a thick, soft, chewy texture. I loved the texture, but it’s important not to over-bake them! (Mine were a little too browned.) The reason this recipe doesn’t take the #1 spot is due to flavor. The pudding is what makes the cookie so perfect in texture, but leaves a slightly artificial flavor from the pudding mix. I wonder how it would be if I tried this again using 2 teaspoons of high quality vanilla? It’s a tough job, but I guess someone should try. And judging by how fast the cookies disappeared the first time, I don’t think my taste testers will mind. 🙂

Is there anything better than an ooey-gooey, hot-out-of-the-oven chocolate chip cookie??? I think not.

Cook Time: 11 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 26 minutes

Super thick and chewy chocolate chip cookies with pudding in the mix for guaranteed softness!


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour (or you can use all-purpose)
  • 1 (3.5-ounce) packet instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Whisk together flour, pudding mix and baking soda.
  • In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy, scraping down as needed. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients and mix until just combined, then stir in chocolate chips.
  • Roll 2 tablespoons of cookie dough into balls and space 2-3 inches apart on baking sheets that have been lined with parchment or a silicone mat. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350ºF and bake cookies for 9-11 minutes. Cookies will appear puffy and undercooked, but set up as they cool. Allow to cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.

    It's actually this recipe here, but I added 2 tablespoons of vanilla pudding to the dry ingredients. They're both really good!
