Bonus Recipe! Chocolate Chip Cookies

Now everyone's had chocolate chip cookies. But these are my family's favorites! I bet you can't eat just one! We can't!
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour $2.99/ Pillsbury 5 Lbs.
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter, softened $1.99/ 1 Lb. Shaws
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar $2.78
1 (3.4 ounce) dry package instant vanilla pudding mix $0.79
2 eggs $1.62
1 teaspoon vanilla extract $1.99
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips ( or reese pieces, M&Ms, etc) $3.00ish
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional, I don't use them)

To Buy all of the above: $15.16
Cost per cookie: $0.30

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the flour and baking soda, set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar. Beat in the instant pudding mix until blended. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Edges should be golden brown.
When you take them out they might look a little under cooked, but let them sit on the tray a little longer and they'll turn out just perfect!
Makes about 36 cookies.
