~raggygirlvintage top choc chip cookie recipes part I~

Hi peeps,

Looking for a sugar fix? You’ve come to the right place! If you missed my post yesterday on the 4 “secret” ingredients in our choc chip cookies you can read it HERE.


So let’s dive right in shall we! 

First up the cookie recipe with the surprise ingredient : instant vanilla pudding mix. I like the recipe posted by Jamielyn  over at Iheartnaptime, So hop on over and you can view the original post, and check out Jamielyn’s awesome blog while you are there! 

What I really like about this recipe is it is super quick to whip up. And the cookies are de-lish!

Recipe # 1 

~Yummy vanilla pudding choc-chip cookies~

  • 1 cup salted butter (softened)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3.4 oz package vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
Cream together butter and sugar. Add pudding mix and vanilla. Beat in one egg at a time. In a separate bowl, mix together, flour, salt and baking soda. Combine dry ingredients with wet ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips until combined. Preheat oven to 350F. Spoon cookie dough onto baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

Next up, giant choc chip cookies. I posted about these here. This recipe comes from My Baking Addiction, and was developed based on the cookies sold at Levain Bakery , which I have never had but if they are anything like these they must be amazing.
Warning: these are a meal replacement cookie! 

You can view Jamie’s post and the original recipe here. These are great packaged up as a gift. If they last that long.

Recipe # 2

~Bestest Giant Choc Chip Cookies EVAH~


2 sticks butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 cups good quality semisweet (or milk choc) chocolate chips or chunks

1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream together butter and sugars until well blended and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mix in vanilla and beat until well incorporated.
2. Add flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and mix until just combined. Gently fold in chocolate chips.
3. Form large chunks on sheet pan lined with parchment paper and bake in preheated oven 15-20 minutes until very lightly browned, taking care not to overbake.


Now it was really, REALLY hard to narrow down our third choice, it was a toss up between a recipe that includes corn starch which gives them an amazing texture, or our spicy oatmeal choc chip cookies. 

So in the interests of choc chip cookie connoisseurs out there I am going to post both recipes in a later post and let you decide.
{plus I figured that at least throwing in some oats somewhere may just redeem my choc chip cookie posts. Maybe.}

Happy baking, let me know if you try any of these!!

Oh my goodness girl. I'm sure these contain no calories....right! LOL!

Thanks for the yummy recipe.

I'm so glad that you stopped by my blog. I haven't seen you in awhile and to tell the truth I've been a little lazy about visiting all my blogging buds.
I'm trying to balance it all.
