{bay’s chocolate chip cookies}

While searching for a new chocolate chip cookie recipe, Bay found Picky Palate.  She had a secret ingredient for THE perfect cookie.  Say goodbye to flat chocolate chip cookies forever!


Although I haven’t tried one of Bay’s cookies yet, I have to say, they look amazing.  Might have to do with one of her two secret cookie baking weapons?  I can’t tell, but Bay has reassured me that they are the!  So, I’ll take her word for it.

Secret cookie baking weapons:

1. Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix Powder

2. Cookie scoop!

Bay uses a 1 tablespoon scoop from target.  You can find lots of options here:

Target Cookie Scoops


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 tablespoons instant vanilla pudding mix powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


Here’s what you do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.

In a large mixing bowl, add butter + sugar + brown sugar.  Mix until combined.

Add egg + vanilla and mix well.  Slowly add flour + pudding mix + salt + baking soda.

Lastly, add chocolate chips and mix with a spoon.

Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet.  About 1 inch apart.

Bake 12 minutes.



I dare you not to eat the dough!!  This was my slip up last weekend.  Bay asked me to taste the cookie dough to see what I thought.  So I did.  Gave myself a pat on the back for not eating a cookie.  Hours later realized I tried the damn cookie dough…lol!  Oh well, shit happens.  For the record, I still haven’t had one of those amazing smelling + looking cookies.


Bay says you can’t just have one, so make sure you grab two at a time 🙂


So, if you make them – let me know what you think 🙂
