Luella’s Perfect Chocolate Cookies

I finally started my Christmas baking. Now if you like soft chocolate chip cookies, that will not harden when they cool or even if they happen to last a day or two in the cookie jar, then you will love my mom’s perfect recipe. She use to make each of us kids, that’s right 5 of us at least three to five dozen of these a piece at Christmas time, along with many other goodies. She would start baking very early and bag them up and freeze them until she was ready to make up our Christmas plates, these cookies were just as soft upon Christmas Eve as they were the day she took them out of the oven.
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 small box instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 0z chocolate chip
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Combine first three ingredients in a small bowl. Beat butter sugars, pudding and vanilla in a mixing bowl, add one egg at a time, mixing until well blended. Slowly add flour, baking soda and salt, mix until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
Bake in a 375 degrees oven for 8 1/2 minutes.
