Chocolate Chip Vanilla Pudding Cookie Recipe

The first thing you will need to do is ready your ingredients. Then you will take out two bowls one for dry ingredients and one for wet ingredients. You will place all the wet ingredients in one bowl. Then you place all the dry ingredients except the chocolate chips in the other bowl. You will mix the dry ingredients and then you will mix the wet ingredients. I always place my dry ingredients into the wet ingredient bowl. I do so slowly and I mix them in completely.

Then you will take the cookie dough and using a tablespoon make scoops of cookies on a greased cookie sheet about one inch apart. Then you will place them in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. I make sure mine are golden brown before I remove them from the oven. I place them on the cooling rack and I should wait for them to cool but I usually steal one and have it with a cold glass of milk. These are truly moist cookies. I just love the way they taste.

If you asked me what my run to got to have it item is that someone else makes it is  Starbucks Lemon Pound Cake.  I have it every time I go in there. I just love it. I will say I do not get out as much as I used to so I had to figured out how to get this recipe and then make it at home. I am sure it is something my Grandmother would have loved. This recipe is moist and so wonderful. I can’t tell you how great it smell but it is amazing. I will tell you that the recipe makes two loaves so I do make on and freeze one. I have also been known to make the other one for a friend. I mean who wouldn’t love this. Think of a nice glass of tea or a big glass of milk. It was also the perfect cake to make for the party my daughter and I had. You can see what I did above. I made a little tea party for us! You can only imagine how happy that made her.

Moist Lemon Bundt Cake

The holidays are one of my favorite times of the year when it comes to cooking. So many yummy treats, hearty dinners, and cooking large meals for my extended family.

So I got to thinking about a recipe I’ve used before for a Super Moist Lemon Bundt Cake. This cake is oh so moist and light, but decadent once you add a cream cheese icing on top. Hungry yet? Let’s get started! Continue reading
