Grandma’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies have been part of my life since I was old enough to eat cookies. So it’s been a while. When I left home for college, my grandmother sent this recipe card with me, and it has been a treasure ever since.

When her chocolate chip cookies came up in a conversation recently, Danny and I realized that I had never made them for him. So that was quickly remedied, and I was also able to share them at a church fellowship and with our youth.

My grandma loved coconut, so she would sometimes make these with coconut pudding mix and shredded coconut. Feel free to try that combination as well.

P.S. She mixed them by hand. I use a stand mixer, and that makes me appreciate the hard work she put into making these for me.

2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cups light brown sugar, packed
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 sm package vanilla instant pudding mix
1 package chocolate chips

1. In a stand mixer, combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and pudding mix until creamed.

2. Beat in eggs.

3. Slowly add flour and baking soda until combined.

4. Slowly mix in chocolate chips.

5. Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

7. Drop dough by rounded spoonful on a nongreased cookie sheet.

8. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. The edges will be slightly browned and the tops will bounce back when you touch them. Allow to cool if you have that much will power.
