Best Chocolate Chip Cookies...EVER!!

My family is very serious about two things...
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! 
**Get all your ingredients out to make it easier to put it all together

**Cream together butter, sugars, pudding, vanilla

**Beat in eggs, one at a time till creamy

**Gradually add flour mixture, then chips

**Place on cookie sheet in rounded teaspoons about 2 inches apart

**Bake at 375' for 8 to 10 minutes

**Remove from cookie sheet and cool on rack
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 eggs
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!!!
