I don’t usually bake cookies or biscuits.
That’s because we have quite a number of cookie monsters at home, myself included. Hee! Under normal circumstances, these cookies would be gone in say, 3 days max. If you look at it from one angle, it’s a good thing. I’m very certain all bakers would be really pleased seeing how fast their bakes fly off shelves, in this case, tubs.
However, if you look at it from another angle, it’s really quite a bad idea to bake cookies or biscuits given how fast these little morsels disappear!
Why, you ask.
Well.. because 3 days later, i’ll get boys complaining about sore throat or cough.
Once a while, i’ll still bake them though. There are too many good recipes to try out!
Chocolate Cookies with White Chocolate Chips
Adapted from AllRecipes – Black & White Chippers
Makes 2 tubs
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
In the bowl of a stand mixer or a large mixing bowl with a hand-held electric mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat to combine.
In a separate bowl, sift the cocoa, flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Gradually beat the flour mixture into the creamed mixture until fully incorporated. Fold in the white chocolate chips by hand with a spatula.
Using a spring-loaded ice cream scoop or a spoon, drop rounds of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes, until puffy but still soft, being careful not to over-bake. Allow to cook on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
Taste wise, it wa’s OK. Didn’t wow me that much. Apart from its lovely colour — i love the contrast! — the cookies were quite crumbly. What i dig most was that every bite i took, there will be a white chocolate chip inside! The boys and i would fight one another for those which had the most choc chips on them. :P
But will i bake these again?
Hmm… most likely not. I don’t fancy repeating recipe unless i love it very very much.
