Jennifer's Week Twenty-Six Recipe: White Chip Chocolate Cookies

I have wanted to make a reverse chocolate chip cookie for a long time and finally got around to doing it when I offered to bring dessert to Chez Olson for a play date.

And, yes, I know that some people think white chocolate is "unnatural"!


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 2/3 cups white chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Fold in the white chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are set. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

These cookies are very tasty. Dangerously tasty. And Cheyenne mentioned a way to make them even tastier! Macadamia nuts. I think next time I will reduce the amount of white chocolate chips and add some of those tasty Hawaiian nuts.


  1. Next time skip the white chocolate and use REAL chocolate chips!

  2. I admit, this recipe would make a good double chocolate cookie.

  3. Peanut butter Chips!!!! (or that's my vote...w/ the mac. nuts.

  4. What about toffee chips? And the nuts. Or maybe I just need to make cookies, as all of the options sound good.
