Chocolate Chip Cookies

from Betty Crocker -with my changes

2/3 cup shortening (not butter flavored)
2/3 cup real butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup instant vanilla pudding (the dry stuff)
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
Mini Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips

Cream shortening, butter, sugars, pudding, eggs, and vanilla. Add flour, salt, and soda all at once. Mix with mixer until you can't anymore. Add in as many chocolate chips as you want. Mix with mixing spoon (I use one of those long handled plastic or wooden ones). Roll into balls and cook at 375 for 10 minutes.Let sit on cookie sheet for just a minute when they come out to set up and then let cool on cooling rack.

Note: I love to halve this recipe. Or I make the whole thing and roll all dough into balls and then freeze them in the freezer. I just put them in a freezer bag. This is a great way to have cookies on hand quickly for stuff. And it always seems like you need some for this or that. It is a great recipe and the pudding makes a difference.
