Special Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yeah, I know, everyone thinks their chocolate chip cookie recipe is the best. But this is actually different from everybody else's recipe. My mom's standard recipe always tasted delicious, but the cookies would always be fat. One day I made some other kind of cookies that used melted white chocolate in the batter and they were too thin. I combined the two to make this recipe.

{Special chocolate chip cookies}

serves plenty

2 1/4 c. flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 c. (2 sticks) softened butter
1/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. vanilla instant pudding mix
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 c. white chocolate chips (Guittard brand preferred)
1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix the butter, sugars, vanilla and pudding mix until creamy. (Compared to a regular cookie recipe, the pudding mix substitutes a portion of the sugar.) Beat in eggs. Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate chips and stir until smooth. I'm adamant about the brand of the chips because, for some reason, if I use a different brand the texture and flavor just isn't quite the same. However, if you can't find them in the store (I looked two different places and they weren't there!), don't fret too much. Anyway, mix the melted white chocolate into the batter. Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. Scoop out tablespoon-sized blobs and bake at 375 F for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
