Vanilla Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies

The secret ingredient to these cookies is definitely the addition of vanilla pudding. I have used pudding mix before, in Sandy's Banana Bread, and it really makes baked goods so incredibly soft.  After I made these cookies, I remembered why I should incorporate pudding mix into more of my treats. These cookies are super soft, chewy and, like most freshly baked cookies, are best when eaten straight out of the oven.
