Based on a 2,000 calorie diet


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Whisk together the flour and baking soda in a bowl.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the butter and margarine together until thoroughly blended, and mix in the white sugar, brown sugar, and instant pudding mix. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Mix in the flour in several additions, then mix in the chocolate chips. Dough will be stiff.
  3. Drop by tablespoon onto an ungreased, nonstick baking sheet, about 2 inches apart; flatten the cookies slightly.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until light brown and still soft on top, 8 to 10 minutes. Do not overbake. Allow to cool for 1 minute on the baking sheets before removing and cooling completely on racks.

I have made these cookies for years. My sister sent me a copy of the recipe off of the pudding box. I have used banana, lemon and coconut cream pudding depending on the flavor or date I am making them for. My children and my grandchildren love them. They freeze and ship overseas well. I have used them for bake sales and for dessert trees. I have always had good luck with making them and complements where ever I took them. Just have fun making them and eating them.

GREAT cookie! I used all butter, instant CHEESECAKE pudding mix and extra-dark chocolate chips. What I liked most about this cookie dough was you didn't need to chill it. The instant pudding firmed up the dough enough so you could just mix it and just go. HUGELY popular with my husband. Absolutely yummy.


I added the zest of one orange to these and they really complemented the vanilla and chocolate flavours. You can taste the vanilla pudding on first bite. I searched chocolate chip cookies and displayed recipes by highest rating - only after did I realize these only had one persons' rating! Fortunately, they are terrific.
