BUMP! I really needed to do this because I made some of bunnywomans cookies and thought they were just fabulous. Ive been struggling looking for the perfect recipe and I finally found it. Thanks, a lot! My husband and kids cannot stop eating them!

I have to ask you, Bunnywoman, how big do you make your cookies? From the recipe, I made 8 and a 1/2 dozens! I made them a little more than 1 tbsp of the dough and they came out pretty good sizes. Good thing I'm going to visit my mom tomorrow and my husband has a board meeting at school as well tomorrow that I'll get rid of some. I could probably try to freeze some but I know my husband will not let me. Chocolate chip cookies are his best and seriously these are the best we've ever tasted! Oh, I also added cocktail peanuts(crushed them a bit) and they were great.

Bunnywoman, again, THANKYOU, for all the wonderful recipes you've shared with us!

If I "kinda overflow" a medium sized cookie scoop I will get about 5.5-6 dozen cookies out of this.

If I keep it strictly at that medium scoop mark then I get about 8 dozen. My Mom wants me to make the small scoop once with my recipe to see how many I get. I haven't done that yet. I would think I could get about 11-12 dozen then (at a guess). I never use the large cookie scoop for these. I tried it once on the last little bit of cookie dough I had in the bowl and got really BIG cookies.

Wow, that is a lot of cookies. But when you want to share, it's no problem!(Not that my husband would want to share,LOL!) Thanks again!

Bunny, like Coloradogirl said on the first page, if you refrigerate your cookie dough for 36 hours, it really develops the flavors and makes for a nice chewy cookie. Have you ever tried that with your recipe? One of these weekends when I don't have a cake, I want to make some chocolate chip cookies and try the 36 refrigeration rest period, just so I can see how much difference it does make in the flavor.

I never have. I make my dough and scoop it out onto a parchment lined cookie sheet with the oven ready & waiting for them!

mavsgirl, i tried this recipe and it was just AMAZING! which is alot because when i normally make cookies they come out really hard and gross. But after making these there wasnt a single one left. So
thank you SO MUCH for sharing this.

Bunny, do you add your pudding mix with the rest of the dry ingredients?
bunnywoman 03/09/2012 2:35 PM
Yes I do. It is in the DRY powder form too. Some have made the mistake and reconstituted it to actual pudding.

These are fabulous! I am making a ton of these again on Sunday.

I was just thinking of making some cookies today. Trying to decide between your recipe and America's Test Kitchen recipe. I hope this is my toughest decision to make today!
bunnywoman 03/11/2012 11:01 AM
Mine are hot and fresh and out of the oven!
Spooky_789 03/11/2012 12:28 PM
I'm still sitting on my butt watching American Idol. lol Trying to catch up on my DVR recordings.

I'm used French Vanilla pudding mix as I didn't have any vanilla. Added chopped walnuts and toffee chips along with chocolate chunks, and my goodness, are they tasty! Of course, the dough tastes lovely. I used three different sizes of scoops to decide what size I like better, and settled on the medium scoop. I've got about four dozen cooling, one dozen in the oven, and probably at least three more dozen left to bake. This makes a LOT of cookies!
bunnywoman 03/12/2012 2:15 AM
Which recipe did you decide on making?
Spooky_789 03/12/2012 8:15 AM
Yours. They were yummy, of course.

I made bunny's recipe this weekend and they were awesome (of course) but next time I will add more chocolate chips. The recipe called for 12 ounces with a note from bunny saying that she adds "way more". I wasn't sure how much more to add and only added another handful. Next time I will add more than that. I used the small scoop and got about a zillion cookies!!!! I liked that they didn't expand much. I scooped them w/my small scoop, then flattened them just a bit and they pretty much stayed that way. Very good. I have so many left that I may need to freeze some. Bunny, can I just use a big ziploc and put a bunch in there and freeze? Then you said to thaw to leave the bag closed on the counter until thawed. Next time I'll add more chocolate chips and some walnuts too. Thanks again Bunny!!
Spooky_789 03/12/2012 12:33 PM
DCnoIce, I think you could easily use 2-12 oz bags of chips. Many of my cookies only had a few chips, some had none. I used Chocolate Chunks, but still.
bunnywoman 03/12/2012 1:46 PM
I am not stingy on the chips by no means!!!!!

I dump in half of the bag and stir with a wooden spoon. I scoop out about the top 1/3 of the bowl because that is where all of the chips are. Then I add in the last half of the bag and stir again. I go down about half of what it left for batter in the bowl. I then open up another bag of chips and dump some more in to finish up the remaining batter left.

If you use a small scoop you will get ALLOT, and I mean ALLOT, of cookies!

I freeze these all of the time!!!!!! Never a problem at all freezing them.

Here is what I do........ok I spoil my hubby and Dad.........I put 5 cookies inside of a Ziploc sandwich bag. I use a Ziploc FREEZER bag and put 5 sandwich bags inside of the freezer bag. This will last them 1 full week at work. I pop it into the freezer. When they need a bag for their lunches they open the Ziploc freezer bag and grab a sandwich bag and pop it in their lunch bag and off they go! Re-seal the freezer bag for tomorrow's lunch. Works like a charm and a real time saver too. My Mom loves it when I have them all bagged up for my Dad and ready to go too.

Hope that helps,
bunnywoman 03/12/2012 2:01 PM

There are not as many "chunks" as there are "chips." That is why you ran out. Try the chips or M&M's and you will have much better success getting "goody" in your cookies!
dietcokenoice 03/12/2012 2:52 PM
I agree, two 12 ounce bags next time. Bunny you are so nice to pack up the cookies so they are ready to go for your husband and your father. You are a real sweetie. I made cookies for my father all the time and he was so good, he'd eat just a few and put them away. He would never share either!!!!
