Time to feature a staple item that got me (and several of my friends) through exams.   Chocolate chip cookies- the soft, chewy-center type.  I made 2 dozen and they were gobbled up real fast between 5 people.  I had to make another batch for the next study party.  I got the recipe from

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsps baking soda
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 pkg instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsps vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Cream the butter and sugars.  Beat in pudding mix.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Add flour and baking soda.  Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.  Drop the cookies by the spoonful onto cookie sheets (I use parchment paper on the sheets).  Bake for 10-12 until golden.
