This is similar to the recpie I use except: 1. Mine calls for french vanilla pudding- which is SO GOOD! 2. To sift the flour with baking soda before adding it. 3. Add it until just blended -do not over mix. 4. Bake temp of mine is 350, not 375. Sifting the flour, not over beating and lowering the bake temp will result in cookies that are softer -not cakey- and stay soft when stored in an airtight container. Actually I bake mine at 335 (true temp on oven termometer) because I feel even 350 is too high. I also usually press them down lightly before baking so they don't brown on top (which when using this much butter can happen). 9 min cook time works for me in my liquid propane oven at 335. Ever since I found this recipe I am banished from making any other. My husbands coworkers say these are the best doggone cookies they ever had. Ps, nuke these for 8-9 seconds per cookie and they taste like they are fresh out of the oven even several days old (IF they last that long)!

Our new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe! My family gives it 5 stars all around. I used vanilla pudding and 2 tsps of vanilla extract. I used a medium cookie scoop and got a little over 3 dozen cookies. Oh, and I didn't have enough brown sugar but had some Splenda brown sugar so I used a combination and they were still wonderful. EDIT on 6/28: I used banana cream pudding today--chocolate chip banana cookies! Very good!

I am not a big fan of cake like cookies. But they were moist, melted in your mouth and had a unique taste. although I do prefer dense and chewy cookies, this was a hit with everyone else and people were even asking for the recipe.

DH requested that I make some chocolate chip cookies, and I'd been eyeing this recipe for awhile. Glad I made it - FABULOUS cookies! DH loved them and they were all he wanted to eat. I cut the recipe in half easily and used smart balance butter. I omitted the pecans. The cookies were nice and cake like but not too cake like. Perfect. Thanks for sharing! :)

These were good, not exactly what I was expecting (I think I was expecting more of a pudding taste), but they were still eaten up!

Terrific cookies! I used vanilla pudding though and only about 1 cup of chocolate chips. Everyone loved these. They're so soft and delicious.

deliciously chocolaty! did not use semi-sweet chocolate chips or pecans, but instead split the batch of dough in half and mixed a cup of white chocolate chips in half, and a cup of milk chocolate chips in the other. delicious! stayed wonderfully soft

These were a hit with my kids but I don't think I'd make them again. They were too cake like with no crisp. They also made nowhere near 10 dozen cookies. I got maybe two and a half and my cookies were on the small side.
