Mix with An Electric Mixer for “Creamier” Cookie Dough

Chocolate Cookie Dough

Ingredients – Chocolate Cookies with White Chocolate Chips

  • 16 Tablespoons – Unsalted Butter (softened)
  • 2 – Large Eggs
  • 3/4 Cup – Light Brown Sugar (packed cup)
  • 3/4 Cup – White Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon – Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Cups – Flour (all purpose flour)
  • 3/4 Cup – Cocoa Powder Natural Unsweetened (not hot chocolate powder)
  • 1 Teaspoon – Baking Soda
  • 1 Teaspoon – Salt (optional – use only 1/2 teaspoon if you are trying to reduce the sodium in your diet)
  • 2 Cups – White Chocolate Chips

Servings – Roughly 24-30 cookies (amount depends on the size of the cookie that you create)

  • Equipment required for this recipe – Measuring cup & spoons, mixing bowl, long wooden spoon, electric mixer, tablespoon or cookie dough scoop, oven mitts, silicon spatula, baking sheets, cooling rack and an oven.

Instructions – Chocolate Cookies with White Chocolate Chips

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Soften butter in the microwave.
  • Lightly beat eggs.
  • Mix eggs, butter, granulated white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Use an electric mixer to mix these ingredients together. Mix until creamy.
  • Then stir in the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Use an electric mixer to mix all of the ingredients together. Mix until ingredients are completely blended and cookie dough looks creamy. FYI – Read the tips section below to find out why using an electric mixer results in a much better cookie than mixing by hand.
  • Add the white chocolate chips to the cookie dough. Use a large spoon (not electric mixer) to stir in white chocolate chips. Stir until chips are mixed evenly throughout the dough.
  • Scoop dough with a tablespoon or cookie dough scoop and place this dough “ball” onto a nonstick baking sheet. You will need at least 2 baking sheets in order to bake all of the cookies at the same time (if they can fit in your oven) or you will need to bake each batch separately (one after the other).
  • Leave space of roughly 2-3 inches between each dough ball because the cookies will spread as they bake.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove baking tray from the oven. Wear oven mitts. Leave cookies on baking sheet to cool for 2-3 minutes. Otherwise, cookies might break when removed from the baking sheet.
  • Use a spatula to remove cookies and place cookies on wire cooling racks in order to cool completely.

Tips – Chocolate Cookies with White Chocolate Chips

  • The tips below are designed to help cookie “novices” and/or people with limited baking experience.
  • Don’t use hot chocolate powder as a substitute for the cocoa powder. For the best results, you should stick to natural unsweetened cocoa powder (which is used mainly for baking).
  • Natural unsweetened cocoa powder is the ingredient that provides these cookies with their fantastic dark chocolaty color & flavor. According to Wikipedia, cocoa powder is “the pulverized cocoa solids left after extracting almost all the cocoa butter. It is used to add chocolate flavor in baking, and for making chocolate drinks”.
  • White chocolate chips consist of sugar, milk and cocoa butter. Unlike darker semi sweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips do not contain any cocoa solids (and thus the white color of these chips).
  • Cookies come out much better if you mix the ingredients with an electric mixer. The cookie dough comes out “creamier” and the ingredients are blended in better if you use an electric mixer.
  • Completely mix the eggs, butter and sugar together with an electric mixer BEFORE adding the flour. This will result in much better cookies. See the inadequately blended problems in the line below.
  • Mixing only by hand can lead to the cookie dough being inadequately blended. This can result in your cookies having unwanted “clumps” of ingredients (i.e. small flour clumps) and/or a gritty texture (inadequately blended sugar grains). Use an electric mixer for best results.
  • However, do not use the electric mixer on the white chocolate chips… as this will just grind & chop them into tiny bits! Hand stir the white chocolate chips into the cookie dough with a large spoon.
  • You can make the cookie dough balls (drops, spoonfuls, etc.) with 2 tablespoons, a cookie dough scoop or your hands. Some people also like to wear food grade plastic gloves when making cookie dough balls/drops.
  • Use of a cookie dough scoop will give you more consistently shaped cookies versus varying sizes from using a less “exact” methods such as using a tablespoon or your hands.
  • For “rounder” cookies (with no edges sticking out), you can use a cookie dough scoop or mold the cookie dough by hand into round balls and then press down on the dough ball until it turns into a pancake shape.
  • For a more “natural” cookie shape, you can scoop the cookie dough with a tablespoon and place the cookie dough “drops” onto the baking sheet without shaping the dough. Your chocolate cookies will taste great and just have a few more natural edges and bumps.
  • Optional – Once you have placed the cookie dough balls on the baking tray, you can press extra chips into the top of the dough balls if you want an even greater white chocolate “appearance”.
  • Place the baking tray on the oven’s middle rack for best results. If the baking tray is placed too high or too low in the oven, the baking tray may be too close to the heating element.
  • If your family likes cookies with white chocolate chips, you might also like to try making our delicious White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cookies recipe. Or if they like chocolate cookies, you should also try our M&M Chocolate Cookies recipe.
  • If you have a problem with a cookie recipe, please make sure that you are following the recipe exactly (i.e. using the correct oven temperature), using the correct amounts of ingredients (i.e. don’t eyeball the measurements versus using a measuring cup or accidentally add a tablespoon when a teaspoon is called for), using the correct ingredients (i.e. baking soda/powder versus yeast or all purpose flour versus bread flour), etc. Please don’t “wing” things with recipes.
  • In addition, you should always try to use relatively fresh baking soda & powder for the best results. For example, using baking soda from an open container (that has been deodorizing your refrigerator for months) may lead to subpar results. Old & hard baking soda/powder may lead to rising problems and/or leave small bitter clumps in your white chocolate chip cookies.
