This recipe is a friend of ours that we met on Facebook. Jett, is a baker and  enterd this recipe in the Cooking Channel’s cookie swap.  She has been in second place for a while now.  I made these today and they are wonderful. 


How to make it

  • Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees F and make sure the racks are set high in the oven.
  • Cream butter and sugars until creamy
  • Add eggs and mix well
  • Add pudding mix and vanilla(I love vanilla, so I use a lot)
  • Mix all until well combined
  • In a seperate bowl, add flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix all together.
  • Add the flour mixture to the sugar/egg combination.
  • Have mixer on slow so the flour doesn’t come out all over and make a mess…..can’t tell ya how many times I’ve done that!
  • When all is mixed well, get a big strong spoon to mix up the dough.
  • Batter will be very thick.
  • Add remaining ingredients and mix it up real good
  • Try not to eat the cookie dough or there won’t be anything to bake…..
  • Wet hands and get a large spoon to scoop out the dough to make big cookies.
  • Allow enough space on the pan for the cookies spreading,
  • Watch very carefully so they don’t overbake,
  • About 7 – 10 minutes
