Reverse Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Author/Submitted by: Michael Romano -- Starchef
Servings: 60
Categories: Chocolate / Cookies / Desserts

1 1/4  cups  sweet butter, at room temperature
1  Tb  sweet butter for buttering cookie sheets
3/4  cup  brown sugar
1 1/4  cups  sugar
2    eggs
1 3/4  cups  all purpose flour
1 1/4  cups  cocoa powder
2  tsp  baking soda
10  oz  solid white chocolate, broken into, 1/4 " chunks
8  ounces  white chocolate chips

P R E P A R A T I O N: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter a cookie sheet, or alternatively, line the sheet with a strip of parchment paper. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda. Set aside. Using an electric mixer or a hand-held beater, cream the butter and sugars until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the eggs and continue to beat until they are well-combined, about 1 minute. Mix in the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda mixture until well incorporated. Fold in the white chocolate chunks with a rubber spatula. Filling a tablespoon, scoop out individual cookies from the batter and place in even rows on the cookie sheet, leaving 2 inches of space between each cookie. Transfer the cookie sheet to the middle shelf of the oven, and bake for 8-10 minutes until the cookies are puffed and still to the touch. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and allow cookies to cool and set for 5-7 minutes before carefully removing them with a spatula. If you have used a sheet of parchment paper, slide the entire sheet off the tray, and allow the cookies to cool for 5-7 minutes. Meanwhile, you may re-use the cookie sheet immediately for baking the next batch.

These rich brown cookies studded with chunks of white chocolate are a delicious, inside-out version of chocolate chip cookies. Since the cookie batter is brown to begin with, you won't be able to use their toasty color as a visual indication of doneness. To avoid overcooking, remove the cookies from the oven as soon as they puff up and are still slightly soft to the touch. The cookies will set as they cool, but should remain pliable rather than hard or crunchy. Makes 60 cookies. Recipe from The Union Square Cafe Cookbook.
