Secret-Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies–Printable Version

Secret-Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies


2 to 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cinnamon or nutmeg

¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 cup (2 sticks) real butter, softened

1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 small box cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix

1 (11.5-oz) bag chocolate chips

1 cup chopped nuts, optional


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon or nutmeg. Set aside.

In a second mixing bowl, blend brown sugar, granulated sugar, softened butter and vanilla extract. Beat in eggs and whip until no lumps appear and mixture is smooth.

Add the packet of dry pudding mix (our secret ingredient!) and beat until creamy. Then slowly blend in the contents of the first bowl. Stir in 1 bag of chocolate chips (any variety) and 1 cup nuts (optional). Drop small, rounded balls of dough onto cookie sheet or foil-covered pizza stone.

Bake cookies 8-10 minutes, pulling from the oven when edges only have darkened (centers will still be light in color). Cool 3-5 minutes before transferring to wire rack.

Finished cookies should stand up tall (most will be 3/4 of an inch thick or more!) and maintain a firm, rounded shape throughout oven time and cooling. Enjoy!

    Believing that you are actually starving, it releases chemicals that actually make it harder to
    lose weight in an effort to conserve energy. Withdrawal from levothyroxine can be done but it takes 6 weeks of withdrawal for the
    remaining thyroid tissue to be completely starved. The institution has persistently offered ideal programs and services
    for those struggling to achieve certain levels of body weight.

    If you find it a bit maddening to follow the daily fluctuations of
    the scale even though you are eating properly, pick three days of the week
    on which you will always weigh yourself (for example,
    Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). For many working to lose weight, one failure
    is enough to get them off the path to success.
    Then leave it a while until your tummy lets you know that you’re hungry again before opting for a healthy snack.
