A Sweet Treat: Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies by Janelle @ Comfy in the Kitchen

As much as I wish that I could claim this recipe as my own, it's not.  I'm not the kind of girl who makes up her own recipes.  I'm a follower of directions, a copy-catter -- not a make-it-up-yourself kind of girl.  I found this recipe on Janelle's blog, Comfy in the Kitchen.  She has a lot of great recipes there!  Enjoy!

The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

(18 cookies)

2 1/2 c all-purpose Flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 c butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 small pkg vanilla instant pudding
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375

Combine flour, baking soda and salt and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter, sugars, vanilla, and pudding mix. Beat until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs. Add flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour. Place heaping Tbsps of batter onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake until golden approximately 10-12 minutes. Take out of oven and let sit 2 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to cooling rack.
