Pudding Mix Cookies

Favorite combinations include butterscotch pudding and chips, pistachio pudding with chopped pistachios and cranberries, chocolate pudding with white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts, vanilla pudding with chocolate chips and hazelnuts and chocolate pudding with peanut butter or mint chips.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened

1 cup packed brown sugar

4-serving size box instant pudding mix (any flavor)

2 eggs

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups flour

6 ounces chocolate chips or bar chocolate, chopped

1 cup chopped nuts or dried fruits (optional)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add dry pudding mix and beat to blend well. Add eggs one at a time. Whisk the baking soda into the flour, then gradually beat into the batter. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets, leaving 2 inches between. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on baking sheets; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 3 dozen.
