Alexis had been bugging me to make some cookies for a while and I finally gave in. She wanted a white chocolate chip cookie and I decided to take it to another level by drizzling it with some chocolate. These were really good, and Alexis really liked them too. Jamison taught a class at work last week so I sent them in to work with him so I wouldn’t eat too many! ;oP
This recipe takes a basic white chocolate chip cookie and makes it pop! The blend of the two chocolates together give it a fabulous overall flavor, while the traditional cookie base is comforting at the same time. These are just perfect to make for yourself or to share!
What You’ll Need For The Cookies:
2 sticks of butter, softened
1 cup of organic cane sugar
1 cup of natural brown sugar
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of sea salt
3 cups of unbleached all purpose flour
1 – 11 ounce bag of white chocolate chips
In a large bowl cream together butter, sugars and eggs until smooth. Add baking soda and salt and stir until mixed. Slowly add flour a little at a time and stir until dough forms. Stir in white chocolate chips and refrigerate dough for at least 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Scoop dough out with a tablespoon measuring spoon and place roughly 2 inches apart on a baking sheet that has been lined with a silicone baking sheet or parchment paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes until slightly golden. Remove from oven and let cool completely before drizzling with chocolate. (See below.)
Makes 4-5 dozen cookies depending on how big your scoops are.
Notes: I think it would be delicious to add some citrus to the cookie dough. Either lemon or key lime would be fabulous, or even orange!
What You’ll Need For The Drizzle:
1 -12 ounce package of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup of half and half
2 tablespoons of butter
In the microwave at half power melt chocolate with half and half and butter at 10 second intervals, stirring between each, until chocolate is smooth.
Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cooled cookies and let it harden and then serve.
Notes: You could use milk chocolate or unsweetened chocolate if you prefer, but if you go the unsweetened route you’ll have to sweeten it yourself.
