This cookie has 2 faces

I had read a TON of chocolate chip cookie recipes the other day and ended up making this one, Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies. With a lofty name like that, i had super high expectations. I mean award winning makes you think ooh...ahh...right?!

So i made the first dozen as written and baked immediately after mixing it up. They came a solid OK. I put the rest of the cookie dough back in the fridge feeling somewhat disappointed. The cookies were good, but it got me to thinking about who exactly were the judges handing out this award?!

The next evening rolls on by, and i asked my hubby if he wanted a fresh baked cookie. He says sure, and i go to the kitchen, but decide not to turn on the oven and i just put 6 cookies on a pan and baked it in my toaster oven at 350 for 6 minutes. I pull them out and they are nice and brown on the inside and all melty on the inside. We enjoyed 1 piping hot out of the oven and let the others sit out.

Here's the best part. We forgot about the cookies until the next afternoon and when we tasted them, they were super soft and really good! I told my hubby it's like those 'soft baked' cookies in that red package.

This recipe is pretty good, i'm guessing it's the pudding that keeps them nice and soft. I can't say it lived up to all my lofty expectations as an award winning cookie. I don't know if i'd give this recipe a blue ribbon, but it's definitely deserving of a red ribbon. ;)
