Blue Ribbon Recipe

Vanilla pudding in my chocolate chip cookies?! Heavens, they're good. The vanilla pudding adds a nice flavor to the chocolate chip cookie that you can't exactly put your finger on. This is a very easy chocolate chip cookie that reminds us of the soft batch cookies you can buy at the grocery store. Yum!
