Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

So Price and I typically don’t keep the heat on in the house in the winter. We just deal with it and bundle up in layers. LOTS OF LAYERS. Kinda has to do with paying the hefty electric bill. But now with Autumn around we’ve selectively been putting on the heat. And cringing.

But to help heat up the house I’ve devised a plan… keep the stove and oven going as much as possible!*

Cookies! Pies! Pizza! Roasts!

I had seen these Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies on Amanda’s blog earlier this year and immediately Pinned them to make them when the time was right. And pulling hot chocolate chip cookies out of the oven was just what was needed last week when we were glued to the TV watching Winter Storm Hercules approach the Northeast.

While cookies don’t taste very different than the typical chocolate chip cookie, they are texturally different. They are so soft!! Pillowy! I love soft cookies like this so I wanted to eat them all but held back at 2 and sent the rest far, far away with Price to share with his office. But I’m totally hooked so I’m gonna have to remember to get some more pudding to have on hand. Maybe even in other flavors…

*No, I’m not turning on my oven and leaving the door open. It just gives off some extra heat when I’m cooking to keep the kitchen toasty!

  1. bwahahaha it is SO funny you mention the heat thing cause I have been thinking of that SO much!! I’m thinking about next winter, and what we will do when we can’t be cheap and cold and keep it on 60 like we do now!! I do the same thing to warm it up, only when I am done with the baking I DO leave the oven door open lol
