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.

But.

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.

Verdict :

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.

  2. hehe these look like famous amos! blah i have no time to bake anything now, so much stuff going on at uni. hopefully i’ll get to eat these soon after exams maybe ;D

  3. Black and white……I love the concept. ;-)) They look lovely.

  4. That’s why I rarely bake cookies too! Bad for the waistline too :P

  5. Cookies, cookies… Black and white never looked so good ..okay that kinda sounded weird!

  6. Well, all the more you should be baking more cookies / biscuits. My reason for not baking cookies is exactly the opposite – they sit around for too long…. bet these are gone by now!

  7. I too have a cookie monster in the house. A lot of the time I hide away a separate box of cookies just for me when the monster has eaten his share. Mmmm cookies and milk, my favourite!

  8. I wonder which comes first for me – me not baking that did not give me a sweet tooth or me not having a sweet tooth being the reason of me not baking…hee heee…

    Some like it crumbly while others like it chewy. It’s crumbly for me.

  9. Those look amazing! Too bad they weren’t as delish as you had hoped. I don’t like crumbly cookies very much- I’m a fan of softies :)

  10. ellena : haha!! err… i noticed you know.. but duwan to say anything only! :P

    grub : unfortunately, nothing like amos cookies which i had hoped for. not chocolatey enough!

    angie : i love the color contrast too! 1 of the reason why i went forth with baking them. :)

    pigpigscorner : i so hear ya! cookies are no no!

    elle : heheheee! funny babe!

    shirley : all the more?!?! i’ll probably weigh 5 kg heavier by end of the year then.. heh!

    john : grin. and i the opposite. i often ask the helper to hide the cookies away from MYSELF. HAHA!

    tigerfish : methinks it’s not having sweet tooth hence no baking!

    kathryn : i wanna try softies next!

  11. I know what you mean by the bad throats! Cookies are so tricky that way; light and addictive, but all it takes is just one bite more than you can handle, and your throat starts protesting.

    I’m not big on white chocolate, but I’m really loving the contrast too! Perhaps I ought to give this a try with cinnamon chips instead :)

  12. Hey Cookie Monster… now I know why the cookies never reach me here ;)
    I love cookies too but worried of the over flowing ‘tummee’

  13. ovenhaven : but thankfully (or maybe not) my throat is kuat. i can eat banyak sekali and no problemo! cinnamon chips?!?! sounds yums!

    lisa : HAHAHA! darn, u just hit bull’s eye. i try not to look at the tummee these days!

  14. i have a recipe like this. it’s one box of cake mix, one tub of cool whip {i use the light} and one egg. mix it tehgtoer and drop onto the pan like you did. you can roll them in powdered sugar or sprinkle them then bake at 350 for about ten minutes until the tops crack . sooooooo yummy and {kind of} good for you. :)

  15. Can I just say what a reduction to find somebody who actually knows what theyre speaking about on the internet.
