Memaw’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

My Mother-in-law makes the best cookies.  She used to ship them to Afghanistan when my husband was there so he felt like he had a piece of home with him.  Now, I have the recipe!  Yey :).  It reminds me a lot of my grandma’s recipe, and you know, I can’t quite make them like she does, but my {step}daughter and I have sure tried :).

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies
2 1/4 cups unsifted flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 pkg (4 serving size) Jello instant pudding (vanilla or any flavor)
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 (12 oz) pkg chocolate chips

Mix flour with baking soda.

Combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, pudding mix and vanilla in large mixing bowl.  Beat until smooth and creamy.  Beat in eggs.  Gradually add flour mixture.  Stir in chocolate chips and nuts (optional).  Batter will be stiff.

Drop by tablespoons on baking sheet.  Press out to help flatten.

Bake in preheated 375 degree oven.  Bake 8-10 minutes.
