Without consciously realizing it, I’ve been on a small quest throughout life to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie. In case you have been to, I think I’m finally willing to say: mission accomplished. Wow, it took me 23 years. The secret? Using instant vanilla pudding mix!

Bake for 9-11 minutes or until slightly brown.

They stay soft for days! Although that will hardly matter because if you’re like me, they’re probably already gone.

David came into the kitchen this morning and said, “you’re eating cookies for breakfast?” I quickly defended, “No, I’m just taking bites out of them for a picture.” Because apparently taking bites out of something isn’t eating it. Right?
