Chocolate chip cookies

In my previous post, I had written that I would give the recipes of the cookies in coming posts. Here is the first one of them. I collected this recipe from a forum I used to participate in. I do not know the original source of this recipe.

  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour (See tip below)
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 pkg vanilla pudding (Instant no sugar added)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter (softened)
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 TBSP vanilla
  • 1 tsp butter flavoring (optional)
  • 1 bag Nestle chocolate chips (12 Oz) or any other chocolate chips. One bag is about 2 cups.
Cream butter and sugars very well. Add one egg at a time and beat. Add the vanilla, butter flavoring. In another bowl, mix self rising flour, all purpose flour, salt, pudding mix and stir well. Slowly add dry ingredients to butter sugar mixture and beat at low. Dough will be thick and you might have to fold using a spatula at the end. Stir in chocolate chips. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Make 1 inch balls of the dough and bake for 10 - 12 minutes. You can make them bigger and bake for longer. This makes about 5 - 6 dozen cookies depending the size of the ball you are making. You can make them into a log and freeze and slice and bake when required. Just add 2 - 3 more minutes in the oven. (Try to use up the frozen dough within 3 months)

If you do not want to buy self rising flour, here is how to make it using all purpose flour. For each cup of all purpose flour, add 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt. Mix well and then measure out and use as per the requirement.
