This is what happens when you wait until the last minute...

When Sugar told me this morning about her recipe search and subsequent invention of a brilliant new chocolate chip cookie, I felt like a total lazy ass.

Although I did bake my face off yesterday, no matter the fact that I was up until 5am the previous evening playing Rock Band at my bff's house. In typical Salt style, I used the procrastination method when looking for which recipe I would use.

I located online after a painstaking search that lasted all of 10 minutes.

Salt's Procrastination Cookies
(Copyright: Some woman that isn't me.)

Yield: About 66,000 cookies. Seriously, unless you are attending a big party or feeding a family of 12, cut this bad boy in half.
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 (3.4 oz) packages of instant vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Sift flour and baking soda together. Set aside.
  3. Cream together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar.
  4. Beat in pudding mix until blended.
  5. Stir in eggs and vanilla.
  6. Blend in the flour mixture.
  7. Add chocolate chips (and nuts or something if you're feeling sassy).
  8. Drop in rounded spoonfuls on ungreased baking sheet.
The recipe said to bake for 10-12 minutes, but I let mine go a for like 15 because they seemed undercooked before. I would suggest just keeping an eye on them after the 10 minute mark.

One thing that really struck me about this particular recipe is the fact that it called for vanilla pudding mix; I had never heard of anyone using it for chocolate chip cookies before. I think it made these cookies taste phenomenal (and my husband agrees and is thrilled that the recipe made so many), but we will just have to wait and see what our taste testers decide!

I'm thinking it's time for cookies for breakfast. :)

Yum. I'll definitely have to try those. I've never heard of pudding mix in cookies either. I like the way they look, too.

Mmmm. Vanilla pudding mix sounds really interesting. I need someone to back cookies for me. I'm too lazy. I always just want to make one big cookies.
