yum. double trouble chocolate chip cookies.

Sweets. Can’t get enough of them. I can pass up anything salty, but you put a plate full of cookies or brownies in front of me and I have no self control. And, personally, the best part of cookies isn’t the cookie itself, but the cookie dough. I am sure some of your are cringing, but I inherited the cookie dough love from my dad. We seriously love cookie dough, especially right out of the freezer. So, I usually double my batches. One for cookies. One for the freezer. Delish.

My friend, Whit passed this on to me for a recipe exchange a few years ago. So, I can’t take any credit for it. {thx, w! xo} But, I can tell you that they are ridiculously yummy. You might need to fine tune the cook time depending on your oven. Too much time and they get a little crispy. Be warned.

{ingredients}

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

 

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
    {or, crush a semi-sweet chocolate baking bar for a chunkier chocolate chip texture}

{mix it up}

Preheat oven to 325°. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.

  • Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
    {trick of the trade: always sift first and then measure your 2 cups, instead of adding 2 cups to the sifter.}
  • In a large bowl, cream together melted butter and sugars, until well blended and creamy.
  • Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and fluffy.
  • Mix the sifted ingredients until  just blended.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips using a wooden spoon.
  • Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time on to cookie sheets. Make sure to leave 3 inches between each cookie.
  • Bake for 14- 17 minutes or until edges are lightly toasted.
  • Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before placing on a wire rack to cool completely.

hand in chips Why these cookies? Well, I figure the white and chocolate chips tie in all of October’s colors and spooky theme. In my opinion, the perfect addition to any October play date or a tasty treat for others.
