Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

You ever had one of those mornings where you wake up early to run and you know your run is going to suck before you even begin? That was me yesterday.  I kept thinking the whole time "I can do hard things"and "I want a cookie". It was the most difficult 10 miles of my life. Good news though, I made it. I headed to the cookies as soon as I walked through the door. 

Eating a few cookies literally saved my life, so I thought I'd share them with you. Wait...I ate them all. I guess I can give you my recipe and you can make them yourself. You won't be sorry. These chocolate chip cookies are the best ever. They are the perfect level of chewiness. 

Don't worry. I didn't eat all the cookies on the plate.

Blend together the butter, vanilla, vanilla pudding mix, baking soda, and eggs.

 Add in the brown sugar, white sugar, flour. 
When the dough is mixed well, add the chocolate chips.

 Spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
Roll the dough into about 1 inch balls.

Cook at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. 
You'll want to take out the cookies when they are just starting to turn light brown.

 Leave cookies on the cookie sheet for about 3 minutes.
 This will finish baking the cookies and leave them perfect.

Place cookies on a wire rack until cool. Then enjoy!

  1. I can't even imagine running 10 miles. I want to quit after my 10k (6.4 miles)

  2. Keep running. It gets easier.
