For all of you cookie-lovers out there, here's my recipe for White Chip Chocolate Cookies. You can substitute any type of chip or add nuts as well. It's kind of fun to change a recipe up just a bit. :)
I always set out all of the ingredients that I'll need before I actually start putting the recipe together. Cleanup is much easier when everything is grouped together instead of spread out all over the kitchen.
3 C. all-purpose flour
1 C. white sugar
1 C. brown sugar, packed
1 C. (2 sticks) butter, softened
2/3 C. baking cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 C. white chips (I like Nestle's)
Beat butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla at low speed. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add the flour mixture to the mixing bowl. Stir in the chips. Place rounded spoonfuls of dough on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Sometimes I make a double batch and freeze a few dozen dough balls. We can always have fresh-baked cookies in a pinch.
