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…

 photo IMG_0875_zpsd4e772fb.jpgI like the huge chunks in these cookies.

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

 photo IMG_0879_zpsbcfec788.jpgThe 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 didnt like the cookies that much sorry but it was too salty and thick for some reason and my mom is a
baker and she helped me this recipe wasn’t that good for me ill try another website ?

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…

Barb

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?

Jenny

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…

I stopped and gave you 5 stars before even starting, because this HAS to be awesome, because you are part of the rare manority that says “NUTS SUCK!” It is a hard place to be. (Except peanut butter of course, but ai don’t think that counts). Thank you for providing as many nutless recipes as possible! Yay!

Donella Coutinho

I just tried these cookies and they really are ‘The best white chocolate chip cookies’. They have such a wonderful milk toffee like taste to them!
This recipe is definitely one you want to keep making!

These are literally the best cookies I have ever had. I hate that they always call for those gross nuts. I would say if you are using salted butter, then don’t add in the additional salt. They are so awesome!!!

Chantal

I made these and they were amazing! I want to make them again but my friend hates white chocolate, so I wanted to make half white and half normal. I know nothing about baking – can I take half of this dough and roll in some normal chocolate to appease my weirdo friend that hates white chocolate? Thanks so much!

Just made these today, in hopes of using them for a fundraiser bake sale. They turned out horribly. First of all, the amount of white chocolate was ridiculous to me, way too much white chocolate per each cookie. Secondly, they all started to burn on the bottom while the top was very undercooked. We used parchment paper at this point and it helped a bit. I will not be using these cookies for the bake sale. They are an embarrassment.

Debbie

These cookies are so good! My in-laws request these specific ones whenever I have to bring cookies to a family event now. They’re easy and super yummy!

Hands down, worst cookies I’ve ever tasted. As many of the comments said, they were huge and cakey, not at all chewy. Worse, there is FAR too much vanilla. I didn’t even use as much as it calls for and still, it’s all you can taste. Can’t even taste the white chocolate. What a waste. All 30 of them went in the trash. Can’t even pawn these off at work. So so awful.

They were too sweet and for half the cup I replaced with coconut sugar which doesn’t have a very strong sweet taste

Ashley

I tried these today, and they were fantastic! They were perfectly chewy and the sweetness was spot on. It tastes awesome even without the white chocolate chips!

Kim

These taste good but came out really flat. Any suggestions to improve?

Love when you can see just how beautifully soft and chewy those cookies will be, well done! I found a recipe which uses dulce de leche along with the white chocolate cookies (https://www.recipestroupe.com/recipe-white-chocolate-covered-sandwich-cookies-50885.html), but dom you know any other “extras” you could add? I hear raspberry and white choc go well together

Debbie

Im baking these right now! I’ll let you. Know how they turn out!

They didnt flatten.. Not sure why. Ive had this problem with multiple recipes…..any ideas? I turned the oven up to 400 for the next dozen…

JoJo

Try different pans/sheets. When I bake them on a shiny metal sheet pan, they flatten, but when I use a dark non-stick pan, they stay poofy.
