choco chip cookies

So I'm a pretty big newbie when it comes to all things cooking related. I was lucky enough to have my mom cook most of my meals with that nice motherly-home feel for the first 18 years, and then moved onto eating dorm cafeteria food-- which was better than I gave it credit for. Now, living in an apartment it's finally time for me to learn how to cook! Not just because I want to, but also because I have to. Considering eating in-n-out everyday wouldn't be sustainable. SO since I tend to get snap happy anyways, figured I would share some of my success stories on the blog. 

I had started out by googling a ton of chocolate chip cookie recipes, but ended up sort of improvising one since I didn't have the exact ingredients for one specific recipe. Surprisingly they turned out to be the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made! I should note, if you're someone who gets a thrill from the risk of burning your tongue while munching down on hot out of the oven cookies, this is not the recipe for that. When they're hot... they taste kinda funky cause of the pudding mix. But when they cool down, mmm so soft and chewy and yummy! 

Recipe for 12 chocolate chip cookies 
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
1/2 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 package vanilla pudding mix
Enough chocolate chips to fulfill all your dreams (or 1 cup)

1. I melted the butter all the way down since I read somewhere that helps make the cookies moister. Also, I'm impatient.

2. Mix in both sugars. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

3. Beat in the room temperature eggs. (Ie let them sit outside for some time before you start)

4. Add in flour + salt + baking soda. Last, add in the pudding mix.

5. Mix in chocolate chips.

6. Using a tablespoon, drop them spoon by spoon onto a baking sheet. I didn't bother greasing mine.

7. Bake around 15 minutes, or until they're that perfect shade of brown.

8. Let them cool before you consume!! Otherwise they will taste sort of... doughy? floury? due to the pudding mix.
