Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sharing is caring!


I seem to be doing a lot of “I’m sorry” baking these days.

First was the “I’m sorry my kid pooped on you” Key Lime Pie, then it was the “I still feel bad my kid pooped on you” Raspberry Key Lime Cheesecake Bites, and now it’s the “I am so sorry I missed my hair appointment” Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I’ve found that in general, good food goes a long way in the I’m sorry process.

First off, let me say that I love the girl who cuts mine and my daughters hair.

She’s SUPER good, quick and seriously, the nicest person ever.

(If you need a hair stylist in Fort Collins, let me know!)

So missing an appointment, really upset me.

It’s not typically something I do.

In order to make it up (on some small level) my 3 year old and I whipped up a batch of these cookies.

Ok, really it was my 3 year old who made them.

She did it all but the oven bit, which she’s not allowed to be near when its on.

But that is how easy these cookies are to make.

Did I mention they are DELICIOUS! So easy to make, and incredibly soft.

Even days later, they are still soft and chewy.

If you love soft chewy chocolate chip cookies then you must try this recipe.

It really is one of the easiest and fool proof cookies out there!

I baked this cookies on Friday 12-14-2018 and they are a good recipe, but they are not sweet enough for me. I will make them again, I will just add more sugar. I also added some walnuts chips. The cookies turned out great just not sweet enough for me. It gets a thumbs up.

Thank you for your comment Annie! More sugar and more chips is an easy way to up the sweetness! Thank you for your comment!

I use this recipe as well - so yummy! Do you use instant vanilla pudding or cooking pudding?

Whoops - after reading the instructions I do see that you use "instant" pudding. Sorry :-(
