White Chocolate Chip Cookies – originally by Nestlé (and originally chocolate chip!)
What you’ll need:
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) softened unsalted sweet butter
- ¾ cup sugar
- ¾ cup brown sugar (I use light, but dark or regular works fine)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 1 12oz bag of white chocolate chips (or if you want, chocolate chips for chocolate chip cookies)
Bake at 375 deg F for 9-11 minutes
Sift the flour, salt and baking soda in a bowl separately, set aside.
Let the butter soften and mix in the sugars and vanilla until solid and creamed fully. Add eggs, mix until eggs are fully mixed in and gradually add the flour mixture (probably about 3-4 segments of pouring it in and then mixing)
Bake – if the dough is really soft put it in the fridge for about 10 minutes before you bake it, and put it back in the fridge while the cookies are in the oven.
I can’t believe I hadn’t officially given you guys my favorite chocolate chip recipe yet! I thrive by this recipe, it’s my default when I want something tasty. This was one of the best things to make with my Mom when I was younger, and it was always a challenge to sneak my taste of cookie dough. Always satisfying when I managed it and didn’t get scolded – sorry Mom! My only comment on these is that these are very sugary – I’d probably like to add – you guessed it – macadamia nuts the next time I make them.
