And this is my favorite recipe. I'm not sure where this recipe came from. If it came off a jello box and passed around my family until I finally got it... but it's been tweaked a bit over the years to what seems to work the best.
Preheat oven to 350 or 375, which ever works best for you.
1 box instant vanilla pudding
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 white sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup butter (or margarine, butter works the best)
2 1/4 cup flour
as many chocolate chips as you want!
Mix all together
Spoon onto baking sheet
Bake between 7 - 10 mins or until browned to perfection!
