I have a confession to make. I was never really into cookies like that. It's weird right? I always thought that they're so yummy and everything, but I had absolutely no desire to ever either bake or buy cookies. Somehow deep down, I was never really sure they were worth it.
But! Last year, Tony lived in the Hells Kitchen area, and some cookie store named Schmackary's opened up. There was some coupon Google Offers for a buy one get one free cookie, and he dragged me along. I ended up with a rich chocolate cookie with mint chocolate chips and oh my god it was so crazy good!! Okay it was so good it changed my mind about cookies. Clearly the cookies I've had in my life were never that great. You know what it is? It's the amount of butter that Schmackary's puts in their cookies. You need butter. YOU NEED BUTTER.
Chocolate cookies with white chocolate chips are my absolute favorite to make now (okay, mostly because I can't be bothered to find mint chocolate chips and I always have way too many white chocolate chips lying around). I've made them so many times... and this is my favorite recipe for it. It's got a nice delicate slight crunch on the outside, but chewy and soft on the inside - almost like caramel? It's not super duper different from a regular chocolate chip cookie, except you sub white chips in and add chocolate powder to the dough, you know? The recipe is cut down to make 8 large cookies. Because well, there's only two of us and I can't have a full batch of cookies floating around like this or we will eat it all in a day and gain a million pounds.
Chocolate Cookies with White Chocolate Chips
8 large cookies
What to use:
- 1 stick butter
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/8 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp AP flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- Small pinch of salt
- White chocolate chips (between 1/3 cup - 1/2 cup, depending on preference)
How to do it:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cream butter and sugars until the mixture is light and fluffy. Incorporate the egg.
- In another bowl, sift the dry ingredients (cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt).
- In batches, stir dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
- Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes. The top should have a slightly crunchy texture but the cookie shouldn't have set yet.
- Let cookies sit until they have set, around 10min.
