The World’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe:
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 package of instant vanilla pudding mix (3.4 oz size)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cover cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, cream together butter, vanilla pudding mix and both sugars until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix well.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredient in the large bowl, and stir until combined. Add the chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoon on to the cookie sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden brown. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for at least 20 minutes before assembling the ice cream sandwiches.
To make an ice cream sandwich, simply add a scoop of softened vanilla ice cream to the back side of one cookie and top with another. Roll the edges in mini chocolate chips, sprinkles, granola or crushed nuts to add a little extra flair!
