Dry Ingredients

  • 2-1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 pkg instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick) room temperature
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 16 oz chopped chocolate or 1 bag of chocolate chips/chunks


  • Put all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl and whisk together until well combined. TIP: spoon flour into measuring cup until overflowing and then use the handle of the spoon to evenly scrape off the excess.
  • Cream together the butter, shortening, and sugars until well combined and creamy. Add vanilla and eggs, ONE AT A TIME, scraping the bowl well between each addition. Beat until light and fluffy - this can take up to 2 minutes depending on your mixer. Scrape the bottom and sides of mixing bowl.
  • If using a standing mixer, add all of the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients (while powered off), then starting on the lowest setting, mix, gradually speeding up to medium-low power. If using a hand mixer, add dry ingredients in three batches. Stop mixing when no more "white" of the flour is showing. Try not to overmix. Scrape the bowl and add the chips/chunks. Turn mixer on to low for about 5 turns to incorporate the chocolate. Scrape bottom and sides of bowl.
  • Scoop cookie dough evenly onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet, 2" apart - only 12 to a tray. Bake ONE TRAY AT A TIME in hot preheated 375-degree oven for 8-12. Cookies should be golden brown w/ light brown on the peaks of the cracks along the tops.
  • Remove from oven to a cooling rack. After 5 minutes, remove cookies from tray and place directly onto cooling rack.


Will stay soft and awesome for up to 5 days in an airtight container.
