My sister in law's sister introduced me to these cookies and it took me about half a second after tasting them to ask her for the recipe.
They were softer than any chocolate chip cookie I had ever tasted--especially for being homemade!
The secret ingredient is instant pudding--it keeps them soft, gooey, and chewy for days. You will definitely fall in love with these cookies at first bite just like I did!
