White Chip Chocolate Cookies
vanilla-flavored baking chips
-- (I used Nestlees)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixer bowl, cream butter
and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla extract. Beat
until light and fluffy.
Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Beat into
sugar mixture, mixing until well blended. Stir in white chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake
8-9 minutes. Cool slightly on pan before removing to a wire
rack. Cool completely. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
Personal Note: Do NOT overbake. Nine minutes is the tops. The
cookies will be soft. They puff up while baking, but will
flatten upon cooling. Do not be tempted to bake them "just a
minute" longer. If you do, the bottoms will burn. (I found out
the hard way...)
I compared this recipe with the one on the back of the
Nestlee's White Chip bag....they were similar, but not
identical. For instance, this one doesn't use brown sugar like
the Nestlee's one did. I have absolutely no idea where my
mother-in-law clipped this recipe, but it is definitely worth
your time to make it.
Wonderful with a glass of cold milk....
Hugs to all,
