Green Chocolate Chip Cookies

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day: green cookies! And not just any green cookies. They’re made from special green ingredients that will keep everyone guessing.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 ripe avocado
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 pkg of pistachio pudding mix
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream together butter and avocado and sugars until smooth. Stir in eggs and vanilla. In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda and dry pudding mix. Add to avocado mixture and mix until blended. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop rounded spoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, until edges are golden.

Well, no one has tried these yet but me. Tony’s working tonight and the boys are in bed, but I’m impatient to post this because they’re so yummy that I have to share them right now!
Just look at this beautiful green cookie dough:

The green colour faded a bit when they baked but they’re still obviously green, which is what I was going for. The avocado and pistachio pudding are what gives it this colour. I know it sounds weird, but trust me! The avocado allows you to cut down on the butter and it has such a mild flavour that you can’t taste it at all. They just taste like amazingly good chocolate chip cookies.
