Awesome Vanilla Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love experimenting with different recipes in my quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie.  They have to be soft on the inside and have just the right amount of crispness on the outside.  These scrumptious things were a winner with my whole family!   (The pudding mix makes these delightfully soft so using whole wheat flour or nuts would probably be fine in these.) 

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup plain yogurt
3.4 ounce package vanilla instant pudding mix
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-2/3 cup (1 bag) dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.  Beat together the butter, oil, and sugars in a large bowl until creamy.  Add the 1/4 cup yogurt and mix until combined.  Add pudding mix, eggs, and vanilla and mix to incorporate.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add the dry ingredients to the sugar mixture and mix just until combined.  Stir in all the chocolate chips.  Drop cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until slightly golden and just set.  Remove cookies from oven and let cool on baking sheet for two minutes.  Transfer to cooling rack and cool completely.  Makes about 3 dozen.
