The Simple Addition That Will Elevate Your Chocolate Chip Cookies
By HALDAN KIRSCH
It's been rumored that the chocolate chip cookie was invented accidentally by Ruth Wakefield in the 1930s, but you'd never know it, given the cookie's outrageous popularity that seems tailor-made for endless variations, both classic and not-so-classic. One unexpected ingredient can elevate your classic cookies in a snap.
Instant pudding mix is not only cheap, quick, simple to use; it can also be added to desserts such as chocolate chip cookies. Adding uncooked, powdered vanilla or chocolate pudding mix to your dough will be a treat for lovers of soft cookies, since this trick results in a lusciously soft, gooey, and chewy texture.
Instant pudding also comes in countless varieties that allow you experiment with flavors; try adding lemon-flavored pudding mix for a hint of citrus. It’s recommended that you add a 3.4-ounce box of pudding mix to your dough, and always chill the dough in the fridge for at least an hour before baking your cookies.
