  • 1 cup unsalted butter cold and cut into cubes
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs cold
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour spoon and leveled
  • 1 (3.4 oz) box instant vanilla pudding mix chocolate pudding mix is also great if you want double chocolate cookies
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups chocolate chips I used equal parts semi-sweet, milk, and dark


  • Place butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar into the bowl of your stand mixer.
  • Beat until light and fluffy, this takes a while, because the butter is cold.
  • Scrape down the sides, then beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.
  • Add in flour, instant pudding, salt, baking powder, and baking soda, and beat again, until incorporated.
  • Beat in chocolate chips.
  • Line 4 baking sheets with silicone baking mats.
  • Use a large cookie scoop to scoop out 32 dough balls — place 8 onto each prepared baking sheet.
  • Optional - chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. This helps the cookies from spreading.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, then baked the chilled dough balls for about 15 minutes.
  • Cool slightly, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.
