I think cookies are my favorite thing to bake. Have you ever met someone who didn’t like cookies? They are such happy little fellows that come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and flavors. Some of my most favorite cookies are baked with pudding in the mix. It’s the secret to keeping them extra soft and chewy!

This recipe comes from my dad with one big change: I substituted a combination of dark and milk chocolate chips instead of raisins. It’s a personal choice, but I dislike shriveled fruit. Unless it’s cranberries! Which would be great in these cookies. Also, my dad wouldn’t dream of making cookies without walnuts, but I leave that decision up to you. I do, however, recommend with a glass of milk. 🙂
