My family is very serious about two things...
FAMILY and CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES!!!
I mean my hubby wont eat a cookie if its not good (well unless hes trying to be polite). I think he considers him self an expert in the field of cookies! The other day I bought some cookies just to have on hand if kids friends stopped by and he took one bit and decided that those were the grosses cookies ever and I wasn't to buy them again! Well I guess he made himself clear.
So I figured I better make him something cuz he LOVES his cookies! Our family has a favorite...Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies...Probably the best and moistest cookie around!

CHOCOLATE CHIP PUDDING COOKIES
31/3 cups unsifted flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 cups of butter or margarine, softened (not too much)
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 package (6 serving size) jello instance pudding (vanilla, chocolate, etc)
(for regular cookies use vanilla, for peanut butter use chocolate...experiment with different flavors)
1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
3 or 2 cups chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (optional)
Mix flour with baking soda. Combine butter, sugars, pudding mix, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl; beat until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time until creamy. Gradually add flour mixture, mix well, then stir in chips and nuts. (Batter will be stiff). Drop by rounded measuring teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake at 375' for 8 to 10 minutes. Makes about 10 dozen.
**They really freeze well...just scoop out on a cookie sheet, freeze and then place in a container with a layer of wax paper between each layer. These ones are my Chocolate peanut butter cookies...These are AMAZING!!!
