So, Price and I typically don’t keep the heat on very much in the house in the winter. That’s crazy, I know.
In fact, we just deal with it and bundle up in layers. As a matter of fact, LOTS OF LAYERS. There are times when we look like Joey from Friends when he dressed up in all of Chandler’s clothes.
Still, we stick to limiting our heat in just a few rooms at a time, despite the fact that we are freezing our buns off because electric heating is so dang expensive. Part of me wishes we had gas heat, because it typically ends up being cheaper, but I like having more control with the electric heat. You just can’t win it all the time. (Basically, it would just be great if we lives somewhere where we didn’t freeze our butts off for months on end!)
However, with Autumn here, we’ve selectively been putting on the heat in order to have the house cozy. After all, she needs to be warm and comfortable, even if that means we are cringing because of the high bill that sure to be on its way.
Since I am such a smarty, I’ve devised a plan to help keep the house warm… keep the stove and oven going as much as possible!
Everything from cookies to pies to pizzas to roasts!
I had seen these Pudding Cookies on Amanda’s blog earlier this year and immediately Pinned them to make them later on in the season. I was so interested in what made these cookies so special. What would the pudding do in these cookies? Well, let me tell you…
While these cookies don’t taste very different from the typical chocolate chip cookie, they are textually different. They are undoubtedly so soft from that yummy vanilla pudding mix that is mixed into the cookie batter. If you like a soft cookie, then you will L-O-V-E these Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies.
I love soft cookies like this so I wanted to eat them all!! It was so hard, but I resisted, and held back at 2. Then I sent the rest far, far away with Price to share with his office.
But I’m totally hooked on Chocolate Chip Cookies so I’m gonna have to remember to get some more pudding to have on hand for when I make them when another craving hits.
Maybe even in other flavors!!! Oh boy! The possibilities are endless. I can’t wait to try more pudding cookies!
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 Cup Butter, softened
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 3.4 oz package instant vanilla pudding
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350F. Line a cookie sheet with a non-stick baking sheet.
- Sift together flour and baking soda; set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add in pudding and beat until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla, mix again.
- Add flour mixture slowly until well incorporated. Add chocolate chips and beat just until they are incorporated.
- Roll into 36 1" balls and place on greased baking sheet. (They don't spread too much, but you still want to give them some room. I typically fit 12 per baking sheet.)
- Bake for 8-12 minutes or, until just set in the center. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to completely cool and enjoy.
