These cookies were kind of a "what do I have at home that might make a good cookie" type of recipe. Enjoy!
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 small package (3.9 oz.) chocolate or chocolate fudge instant pudding
1 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1 cup Craisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire rack.
