2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 pkg (4 0z) pudding mix (I usually use vanilla or chocolate)
1 tsp vanilla
12 oz package chocolate chips (I also have used peanut butter chips or a 1/2 and 1/2 mixture of peanut butter and chocolate chips)
1 cup chopped walnuts, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, mix flour with baking soda. In a large bowl, combine butter, both sugars and pudding mix. Beat until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture, then stir in chips and nuts. The batter will be stiff.
Drop rounded teaspoon sized batter onto ungreased baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 -10 minutes or until golden brown.
