    I don't think these are the best cookies I've ever had, but they are pretty good! I think this recipe is a good base for me to then work around, adding and subtracting things that I like. Next time I may add in some cinnamon, use dark chocolate chips. Maybe even change the pudding to a different flavor. Good decent recipe!

    Very good. I like the cake-like texture.

    Soft, chewy chocolate chip cookies. Doesn't get much better then that. These are delicious.

    Cookies were tasty, but I did not like their appearance. i would recommend lightly spraying baking sheets with Pam. 10 minutes baking time was WAY too long in my oven! 7-8 minutes was plenty. Cookies were very flat, fragile and had to be removed from pan very gently. I'm afraid I won't be making these again...

    Wow!! These cookies are out of this world! Out of all the chocolate chip cookies I have made in the past, these are definitely the best. I highly recommend everyone to make these. You won't be disappointed. Very easy to make, too!

    These were very bland considering they have both vanilla extract and vanilla pudding in them. I even used 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

    My family and co-workers love these cookies! These are my families all time favorite chocolate chip cookies now. I will have to try the white choc chips and toffee bits next time. Sounds so good. Thanks for sharing.
