I spend a lot of time on Pinterest. Like a LOT of time. In fact, if there’s one type of social media that I’m addicted to, it would be Pinterest (and if I’m being honest… I’m a little addicted to Facebook too!). Anyway, I kept seeing photos of these gorgeous big, soft and fluffy chocolate chip cookies and wondered what they were putting into them to get them so fluffy.
WELL! It turns out that the answer is something that you never, ever would have thought of. And best of all, you can buy it in your local supermarket for about $1.00. Any guesses? Ok, just because I can’t keep a secret, I’ll tell you! It’s instant pudding mix. Yep! Who on earth would have ever guessed that!?
Instant pudding mix is the secret ingredient behind those lovely big chocolate chip cookies and it really couldn’t be easier. Whether you’re making a batch of good old chocolate chip cookies, or are after some quadruaple chocolate cookies, instant pudding mix is the way to go. If you want to make chocolate flavoured cookies, then simply buy a packet of instant chocolate pudding mix, or use instant vanilla pudding mix for your traditional cookies.
The second trick to beautiful fluffy cookies is to let the cookie dough chill in the fridge for 30 minutes before cooking. This will mean the cookies will spread out less – keeping a lovely high cookie to eat. Yummy!
