Yummy Cookies!

This recipe is courtesy of Misty Stratton from my ward. Her daughter brought them to Young Women's one night and they were to die for! I posted the recipe on a Ward Recipe Blog, but they're so good that I have to share the recipe with more people, so I am posting it on my personal blog as well. Try them! I'm a sucker for anything minty!
Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 Cups Flour
1 tsp. Baking soda
1 Cup Butter or Margarine, softened (I used butter flavored Crisco for my first batch)
1/4 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 3.5oz Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix
2 eggs
1 12oz Package Mint Chocolate Chips (Wal-Mart doesn't have just the plain green ones, but they do have the Andes Mint chips. I found the green mint ones at Harmons)
1 Cup nuts (optional)
Combine flour and baking soda and set aside. Cream butter, sugars, vanilla, and pudding in bowl. Beat in eggs and gradually add flour mixture. Stir in mint chips and drop onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
You can use any variety of pudding and chips. Maybe Vanilla Pudding and Butterscotch chips will be my next experiment!
