White Chip Chocolate Cookies - 52 Cookies in a Year, Week 1

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Southern Girl's Nest is hosting 52 Cookies in a Year! When I saw this I thought it would be fun to participate. I do love to bake but I always seem to bake the same recipes over and over. Oh they are good recipes but it's always fun to try out something new, so I thought this would be the perfect way to expand my cookie recipes.

This week I picked White Chip Chocolate Cookies. The idea was from Southern Girl's first week of cookies. I've never made them and I really wanted to. Her recipe called for white chocolate bar, and I didn't have any of that on hand. However I did have a bag of white chocolate chips begging to be used. So off I went on a search for a recipe that I could use those in. Here is what I found...

These are sooo good. Melt in your mouth good! The recipe I used made about 5 dozen cookies. I took half and put in the freezer so they didn't get gobbled up in no time. :) They are that good!

Here is what you need:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour {I used 1 cup white flour & 1 cup whole wheat}
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package of white chocolate chips
Here is what you need to do:
  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until light and fluffy. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into butter mixture. Stir in white chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. {I used a cookie scoop to do this - quick & easy, plus uniform cookies. It also increased the amount of cookies made to 5 dozen}
  3. Bake 8 to 9 minutes. (Do not overbake; cookies will be soft. They will puff while baking; flatten upon cooling.) Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

Found you from Twitter Mamas and boy am I happy that I did. I love your blog! Not to mention this recipe and the idea behind it. I'm going to have to join in. But just not in the next few weeks. It will have to be later as I am completely booked right now. Then again...I might be able to squeeze in a little baking. :)

I'm following you now too and can't wait to read more.
