This is the first yr I tried a choc chip recipe other than Nestle Tollhouse. Was nervous about the vanilla pudding idea, but in truth these cookies were really great in the end (although got a mixed review from family - they liked them but pref Nestle)!
Followed the orig recipe as written for the 1st try (except only had 1 box of vanilla pudding on hand, used 1 box coconutcream too). I wanted to omit walnuts but wasn't sure how that'd affect the end result so kept them in this batch, but now I think the texture will be fine without them. I may substitute nuts w/toasted coconut in a future batch, not for fear of flat cookies but as a flavor pref.
This recipe was EXTREMELY STICKY, even after chilling in fridge for hrs before dropping on sheets. I used a teasp (dip in cold water evry othr drop) but still had to wipe/wash spoon often. To cut the stickiness i may try (half?) butter and butter flavor crisco, also wanna try cocoa powder (in place of 1/4 c flour) and use choc pudding mix for a double choc chip.
Must be pudding that makes it so gooey to work with. I never usually use a scoop for drop cookies, but for this recipe I'd definately recommend one (the kind with a release handle to drop dough off scoop).
The sticky handling and the walnuts are the only reasons I gave this a 4 star rating instead of 5... Great recipe, though I still have to make some Tollhouse for the fam, I WILL be using this again, thanks for sharing!
