Soft White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know I have a couple other recipes for white chocolate chip cookies and squares, but this one is a bit different. Liam loves white chocolate and prefers vanilla over chocolate. Crazy, right?! He is completely satisfied with plain old vanilla when we go get ice cream, too. So we decided to make these cookies today since it’s threatening to storm. I’m glad we did because they are delicious! Yucky weather calls for yummy cookies! So go ahead and get your aprons on and let’s bake….

What you will need:

Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (12 oz) bag of white chocolate chips

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In another large bowl, beat together butter and both sugars until smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Slowly beat in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place about 2 tablespoons of dough onto the prepared cookie sheet, spacing about 3 inches apart. Bake for 11-12 minutes. Allow to cool a bit on the cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy!

Store covered at room temp.

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve already made 2 batches of these cookies in like a week and a half. They are so easy to make and even more easy to eat! I could name these brownie cookies because they really do taste like a brownie in cookie form. So soft and chewy and oh so chocolatey! So go get your aprons on! And let’s bake some cookies…

What you will need:

Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 overflowing cup of granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips (I like using mini in this recipe, but feel free to use whatever size chip you want)

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In another large bowl (or bowl of your electric mixer), beat butter, oil and sugar until nice and creamy. Add eggs and vanilla. Slowly beat in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Drop cookie dough by spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheet. Press down slightly on each cookie. Bake for about 9 minutes. Let rest a minute on cookie sheet before transferring to wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!

Soft & Chewy Dark Chocolate Sugar Cookies

I just couldn’t resist the urge to bake something gooey and delicious today! I started the 3 Day Potty Training Boot Camp for my 2 year old today so we needed something to help pass the time. For those who aren’t familiar with this method, you cannot leave the house for 3 straight, full days. You have to keep an eye on your child at all times. This is fine, now that these cold ass Chicago days are upon us. Plus, little boys Fruit of the Loom briefs are super cute!

Ok, enough mom talk. These cookies are simple to make and don’t have crazy ingredients, so if you need a pick me up, bake up these brown circles of chocolatey, sugary goodness!

What you will need:

Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup granulated sugar for rolling

These cookies are so pretty! My husband even asked, “Why are they so shiny?” LOL

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large bowl, whisk together butter, brown sugar, vanilla and salt. Add egg and egg yolk and whisk until combined.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda and baking powder. Add to wet ingredients and stir until moistened. Dough will be thick.

Roll dough into 2 inch balls and roll in sugar. Place on prepared cookie sheet. Press each cookie down slightly with the bottom of a glass.

Bake for 10 minutes and let cool on cookie sheet for a minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
