Helpful tips
  • Make sure to take out the butter at least an hour before you start on the cookies.
  • To make the butter soften quicker, cut it into pads.
  • I use the double chocolate pudding mix, but you can use the regular chocolate pudding mix.
  • Use a medium cookie scoop. ┬áIt makes for airy-soft cookies.
  • The baked cookies should be slightly browned on the edges and a little soft to the touch.
