Banana Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love cookies. They're probably my favorite junk food of all the junk foods. I crave cookies more than anything else. And I know there really doesn't need to be a reason to make cookies, but I'm going to justify this gluttony. So, in honor of CD's 2 month birthday (on the 20th!), I'm making banana cream chocolate chip cookies.

Regular chocolate chip cookies are absolutely delicious, in my opinion. And they definitely are my favorite flavor. I'll eventually get around to sharing my recipe for them on here. But I wanted something just a little different this time. Well, I love banana, so why not banana cream chocolate chip cookies? What a great combination. I feel brilliant.

Here's what you need:
  • 1 C of butter softened
  • 3/4 C of light brown sugar
  • 1/4 C of sugar
  • 1 (3.4 oz) package of Instant Banana Cream pudding mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 1 bag of chocolate chips
Here's what you do:
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix the butter, sugars, pudding mix, eggs, baking soda and vanilla in a large bowl with a hand mixer until it's completely blended.
  • Slowly mix in the flour until it's all completely blended (no lumps!).
  • Stir in as little or as many chocolate chips as you would like. For a regular-sized bag, I use almost the whole bag. 
  • Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Use a tablespoon of dough for each cookie and leave a couple of inches between the dough.
  • Bake for 7-9 minutes, but keep a watch because they can burn quickly!
  • Let them sit on the cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before setting them down on a cooling rack or another sheet of parchment.
  • Dig in!

These cookies don't last long in my house (mostly because of me), so don't expect them to last long in yours! This recipe should make roughly 28-30 cookies, depending on how much dough you eat.

Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know how they were, and share this with your family and friends!
