My Favorite White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m sorry about these cookies in advance.

And I should also apologize about the name.

I sorta kinda hate when someone tells me something is the BEST.  Well, because then I need to prove you wrong.

So let me say, these are the best white chocolate chip cookies that I ever ate.  Is that better?

You see, usually white chocolate chip cookies come with other stuff mixed in, like coconut, or macadamia nuts.

Well, nuts aren’t my thing.

That’s what she said.

But really, they aren’t.  Unless it’s peanut butter.  Whatever.

And while I love coconut, there’s a time and place people. Time and place.

Plus, simple is pretty much better.

Never once have I ever heard, “Can you please make this recipe a little more complicated?”

Simple wins.

What Makes These White Chocolate Chip Cookies the Best?

The Best White Chocolate Chip Cookies | Cookies and Cups

Let’s talk about why these are the best.

First they are LOADED with white chocolate chunks.

(And also, makers of white chocolate…can you people please make mini white chocolate chips?  While I wouldn’t use them in this recipe, I would work those guys out in other ways.)

Second, they are buttery and soft and an eensy bit crispy around the edges.

And thirdly, well…ALLTHEWHITECHOCOLATE!

How to Make This Easy Cookie Recipe

Here’s how I did them…

Brown sugar is key…

Brown sugar and white sugar in measuring cupsI used 20 ounces of white chocolate, chopped fairly coarsely.

Chopped white chocolate on a cutting boardI like the huge chunks in these cookies.

I’m not a huge chocolate chunk girl, but white is a whole different story.

Chopped white chocolate in a measuring cupThe batter is pretty easy.

Once you get the chocolate chunks folded in, you can chill the dough OR you can bake them straight away. LOVE that option!

Form the dough into balls and place on a lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. You can use a cookie scoop too, whichever you prefer!

I know, right?

So you should make these for sure.

I mean, if you like white chocolate…

And if you don’t,  I’m not sure we can still be friends 🙂

I have adapted this recipe slightly over the years, based on reader feedback! I’ve made chilling the dough an optional step (although I still like to). And I tweaked a few ingredients based on mixed results. I love this recipe and with some of your comments I think these cookies can’t be beat!

I made this for my friend and our families and everybody absolutely LOVED them!
They turned out exactly like I wanted and taste so good. This recipe makes flatter cookies (which are the best in my opinion) and they still taste soft and fluffy! ❤️❤️❤️

These are my absolute FAVOURITE cookies ever. I am not kidding you I have made this recipe so many times (seriously probably over 60 times) that I have it memorized. Best chocolate chip cookie recipe I’ve been able to find, hands down!

Thanks for the recipe!! Looks like people either love or hate these cookies – I LOVED them! Just finished my second batch, added a bit more flour as they spread out too much the first time, but for half batch, 1/2 cup extra flour did the job for me! I also added about 2 tbs maple syrup which made them even better in my opinion!

AMAZING GOOEY COOKIES!!

was dubious to start as there is some bad reviews, I took the comments into consideration and my tips are:
Unsalted butter
Pinch of salt
Half the white choc
Cut out the bicarb

They are amazingggg!!! We made milkshakes with some of the dough, had warm cookies and ice cream too.

Thank you for the great recipe

My cookies came out on the puffy side (more cakey than thin cookie). Here I was thinking what went wrong until I read the comments. I think the dosage on the baking powder/soda may be a bit much? Anyway not horrible but unfortunately not the best cookie in my opinion.

I think these cookies are delicious. Mine stayed puffy, too. I prefer a little flatter cookie but it’s not a big deal. I added chopped pecans because I love nuts in cookies. Also used Stevia instead of granulated white sugar. I guess with white chocolate, nuts, and a ton of butter, cutting a few calories really is a moot point. I used salted butter and the regular amount of salt called for in the recipe and I didn’t think they were too salty.

These turned out so good!!!! Instead of me using the butter as you said, my family loved the butter brown recipe I used for my cake. So I put the butter chopped it up and put in a pan on medium heat and let it simmer for 10to 15 minutes until brown it turned out so yummy. I never saw the yield so I doubled the recipe now we have 72 cookies and there are only 4 of us!!! LOL

My cookies didn’t flatten very much at all. They look like little biscuits. They turned out really tasty the only other thing I’ll say is it does taste salty. Anyone else experience the same as me? I followed the recipe as closely as possible.

Bad recipe. All family members agree. Some are experienced bakers. Too much butter and butter should be unsalted. Amazing so many stand behind this recipe…

I want to make these, but Is the vanilla a typo? Did you mean teaspoons? Even that sounds like a lot.

Also, what brand of chocolate do you use?

just getting ready to make these and will let you know how they are but I love white chocolate chips. I also love cookies.

I followed the recipe exactly and mine came out noticeably salty (even with unsalted butter).

My first batch puffed up and was soft but too thick for my liking. I flattened the second batch by hand with a piece of parchment paper and they stayed nice and flat.

I didn’t hate the cookies, but I’ll be sure to go easy on the salt next time. Not sure if I want to give these to my coworkers tomorrow…
