2 ad 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 3.4 oz. pkg. instant chocolate pudding mix
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet or dark chocolate chips
1 and 1/2 cups walnut pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray cookie sheets with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar with an electric mixer. Beat in the instant pudding mix until blended. Then beat in the eggs and vanilla extract.
Mix the flour mixture into the chocolate mixture until well combined. Finally, stir in chocolate chips and walnut pieces.
Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Once out of the oven, leave the cookies on the cookie sheet for a few minutes, and then transfer to wire racks to finish cooling.
