  • 4 1/2 - 5 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 large pkg Vanilla Instant Pudding (5.1 oz)
  • 1 Cup Butter, softened
  • 1 Cup Vegetable Shortening
  • 1 1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 1 tsp Mexican Vanilla
  • 1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 2 oz Finely Chopped Chocolate Bar of Choice


  • Place Baking Rack in Center of Oven and Preheat to 350°.
  • Whisk Flour, Baking Soda, Salt and Pudding together and set aside.
  • Cream Butter, Shortening, Sugar and Brown Sugar together for about 3 minutes until fluffy and light in color. Add Eggs and Vanilla and mix until fully combined. Turn Mixer to stir and add flour mixture slowly, mix until combined. Stir in Chocolate.

  • Using an averaged sized Ice Cream scoop, Place dough balls one by one onto baking sheet at least 2" apart, and Bake for 14-16 minutes (or until the center doesn’t look raw and edges are just slightly browned). Remove from oven and let cookies rest on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to Cooling rack to cool completely.


Feel Free to Substitute any kind of Chocolate you like! But don't skimp on the Good Vanilla, if you don't have Mexican Vanilla you can use Pure Vanilla Extract or a high quality Baking Vanilla.
