Uhoh....I'm outta butter chocolate chip pudding cookies

I went to bake my cookies for the Parish Fish Fry this week opened the fridge butter.  Went to the freezer butter.  Looks like it is time for a Costco trip for us but in the meanwhile I still wanted to bake the cookies this morning and I didn't want to run out to the store.

If I wanted to get dressed and run to the store I would have gone to Zumba, but I was lazy can read about that here.  Besides, I knew that once I got showered, dressed and out the door my plans for scrubbing down the refrigerator were out the window.  So I started scrounging through my fridge and pantry and saw my canister of coconut oil.   I love coconut oil and I know it is healthy for you.  It has a low melting point but when cold it looks like shortening.  My mother used to use shortening in place of butter all the time. Then I found a couple of boxes of  vanilla instant pudding mix stuck in the back of my baking cupboard as well as some milk chocolate chips.   My decision was made and folks, these may be the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made.  I don't know that I will ever use butter again....unless I am baking for Kirsten, because she is allergic to coconut.
