recipe: white chocolate chip cookies

We had friends over last friday for dinner and I realized that at the last minute that I hadn’t made anything for dessert. (Disaster!) I rummaged around and quickly found the answer…cookies! Even more cookies! I’ve been on a cookie baking kick apparently.

These white chocolate chip cookies were perfect. Delicious, quick, and did I mention delicious?

White chocolate chip cookies 1

What you need:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
12 ounce white chocolate chips

**By the way, I recently discovered Guittard rouge cocoa powder and it’s the most rich and wonderful chocolate powder I’ve used. I’m hooked.**

What to do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs.

Gradually add in flour mixture. Stir in morsels. Drop by well-rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets. (I lined my baking sheets with parchment paper.)

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until centers are set. You’ll see the tops of the cookies crackle a bit. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
