“This is chocolate chip cookie perfection. I am a chocolate chip cookie fanatic, in the past I had tried every variation of every recipe i had ever come across and never found satisfaction. The searching stopped here! I have been making it for years, and for years people have been surprised by how good a simple cookie can be. This recipe will change your chocolate chip cookie world!”
24 cookies

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream together butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla until fluffy.
  2. Add water, flour, salt and baking soda. Stir until moistened. (I recommend doing this step by hand as you do not want to overmx).
  3. Add chocolate chips and instant pudding (if you like richer cookies, add a lot of chips. Personally i like to taste the cookie over the chocolate and more chocolate chips.
  4. affects the texture).
  5. Fold into mixture just enough to BARELY combine. I must stress the importance of this step. overmixing will dramatically affect the perfection of the cookie. You should have pudding mix that isn't fully mixed inches.This step is the trick to perfect texture.
  6. Chill dough in refridgerator. This isnt entirely necessary because they will still turn out great if you skip this step. But, if i have time i've found it helps the cookies keep their shape and not flatten as much.
  7. drop 1 inch dough onto cookie sheet 2 inches apart.(I prefer stone bakeware).
  8. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. light golden browning on edges is a good indicator that these are ready to take out. You don't want to overcook these.
  9. Leave on cookie sheet for about five minutes before you transfer to cooling rack (otherwise the will be gooey and fall through rack).
  10. Enjoy!
