Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies *UPDATED*

Oh my goodness.  I'm hesitant to post this recipe, I want to be selfish and keep it all to myself!!  These cookies... are to die for...  If you've been looking for a chewy choco cookie recipe, look NO further!!  I swear, I'll never buy cookies again...  Heaven in your mouth is an understatement...  Crispy bottom, soft, chewy, gooey, melt-in-your-mouth goodness...  YUMM-O!!

Okay, so I won't take all the credit, another recipe found on AllRecipes.com -gosh I LOVE that site...  Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies  - There it is, I just shared a huge secret that only my bloggers will have!!  The secret - Jello Pudding Mix *GASP*!!!

So here's the recipe that's been tweaked:


Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 (3.4 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 
  2. Sift together the flour and baking soda, set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. 
  4. Slowly beat in the instant pudding mix (dry mix out of the box) until well blended. USE YOUR BLENDER
  5. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. USE YOUR BLENDER
  6. Blend in the flour mixture. USE YOUR BLENDER
  7. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. 
  8. Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  9. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Edges should be golden brown

**NOTES** 
If you notice your cookie dough is a little soft and sticky, place in freezer for 15 minutes.  Be sure to alternate cookie sheets so they are NOT hot when you place a new batch of cookies on it.  If you don't have extra cookie sheets, run it under cold water.  There is A LOT of butter in this recipe, placing your dough on a hot cookie sheet will affect your outcome= a flat cookie.  These cookies do not spread much, feel free to load up your cookie sheet!    Take cookies out when edges have browned, it may look undercooked, but it'll be PERFECT, trust me!

I made 1 inch raw cookie dough = 1.5 inch diameter baked cookie.


Enjoy!!!  I swear to you, I'll never BUY cookies, EVER again!!  ...and I think I already at 6 of them right before dinner...  Happy Baking!!


******************U*P*D*A*T*E********************
So I tried again and made the entire recipe this time.  So consistent, it came out 100% perfect AGAIN!  Gosh, I love this recipe!!  This time, I added a bag of peanut butter chips and then added a few choco chips on the tops...just looks pretty is all!

And just to prove to you that these suckers don't flatten and spread a ton, here's the raw ones
And here's how they came out of the oven
And look at how HIGH they are
and equally DELICIOUS!!

cheap and easy [temporary] privacy window covering

Who would have knew how many uses there were for GLAD Press'n Seal??  I've never actually purchased or used this before, but decided to copy a neighbor and use it as a temporary privacy window covering.  We ordered shutters and lucky for us, our order lands over two major holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) which gets our installation date in early January.  We've got windows EVERYWHERE in our new house and our next door neighbor can see into our living room window, as can the neighbors from the street... Our shutter company, unfortunately, didn't give us those temporary accordion shades, but some plastic that purely acts as a privacy covering- it prevents people from seeing through however doesn't do much with regards to blocking the sun from shining in.  They only provided them for the bathrooms and master bedrooms [boo].  So much for the other 16 windows in the house... In comes Press'n Seal!  It's sticky on one side and it easily sticks to the w

our back yard project

We've always wanted to have a small house party, but felt overwhelmed with just 5 people in the living room.  In comes MY back yard project because I was tired of dust blowing into the house and staring at that ugly cinder block wall...not to mention that project that the previous owners started and never finished (see lower right hand corner of photo below).  Eric took ownership of wanting to decorate and 'spruce up' our living room, making it feel really homey and welcoming.  So MY project was the yard and my vision to make it less drab.  Our yard is teeny-tiny and fits right in with our 3 bedroom, 1200 sq. ft. house.   Our friend had a landscaper do their back yard and he came highly recommended, so we went with them without question.  I wanted pavers, artificial grass and two trees/plants.  The landscaper recommended plants that crawl on the wall in effort to sooth my Issue with the cinder blocks...  I wasn't satisfied...  So I hunted and surfed the web for
