Attractive Chocolate Chip Cookies

Submitted by Melissa Maxwell

I entered these cookies in the North Carolina State Fair many years ago.  I didn't win any ribbons and the only written comment I received from the judges was "Attractive cookie."  P.S.  They taste good, too!

½ c. butter, softened

¾ c. shortening

1 ½ c. sugar

¾ c. brown sugar

3 eggs

1 T. vanilla

1 ½ tsp. baking soda

1 ½ tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking powder

3 ½-4 c. flour

1 small package INSTANT vanilla pudding

1 1/2 c. chocolate chips

Variation: Add 11/2 cups milk chocolate chunks and 1/2 cup toffee bits.

Roll dough into balls. Bake at 325 degrees for 10-15 minutes. .
