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?

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…

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

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!

It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

  1. White chocolate is totally an underrated cookie mix-in…love these!

    And can you please remind me of that little “no one ever asked to make something more complicated” tid-bit…I forget all too often.

  2. You can certainly count me as your friend, because I’m all over this recipe! White chocolate cookies without the fancy coconut and nut add-ins…winner for me! I’ll have to make these once I get home (:

    Yum Yum.
    Know what you mean about wanting the mini chips.
    I have even contacted the company requesting that they make the mini white chocolate chips. Maybe we should all ban together and everyone contact them requesting the mini chips and just maybe someday they will be on the market………….you think?

    OMG…these look heavenly. I must try them STAT!

    And I’m TOTALLY with you on the mini white chocolate chips. Why can’t I buy these in my local store right next to the mini chocolate chips?!? So many uses. Seriously.

  5. Ok, So I used to think that white choc chunk cookies needed something else too. Coconut, macadamias…something? But no! I made cookies not long ago that I put huge chunks of white chocolate in and the only something “extra” I did was sprinkle them with sea salt! Holy moly I ate three in a row, huddled over the counter. So, I totally understand this one! Can’t wait to try um.
    PS totally jealous you’re out in Austin for the conference! Wish I could be there and meet you in person this year!

  6. They’re gorgeous! And nuts aren’t my thing either as a general rule in baked goods – UNLESS it’s PB. Then I am all over it 🙂 Ironically I have a nuts-in-cookies post tomorrow for the first time in like 4 years? Go figure. But I lllloove white chocolate. And your cookies look fab. And I’m the same with ‘the best’ – makes me want to prove it wrong 🙂

  7. I don’t know if I can wait two overnights. One is doable, but I’ll end up sneaking big bites of dough when I get up for Lucy’s middle of the night feedings.

    Pregnancy weight whaaa???

  8. My goodness. These cookies are insane. White chocolate chunk cookies were always my favorite growing up and I can see how awesome the texture is from the photos! I’m trying these the minute I get back from BlogHer Food =)

      I used 3/4 cup butter and white chips.they turned out great.the parchment paper makes a big difference in the finished cookie. Its worth it to use it.
