Double Chocolate Chip Cookies (freezer friendly)
I like these cookies because they are simply delicious! They are more of a "thick" type cookie and only use one stick of butter, as opposed to most recipes that use two.
Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 cup regular chocolate chips
2 and 1/4 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl on medium heat or on stove-top. Mix the sugar, eggs, butter, and vanilla in a large bowl or stand mixer until smooth. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt into the wet ingredients and mix until evenly combined, being careful not to over mix or stir. Last, fold in the two kinds of chocolate chips until just combined.
Grease cookie sheet, unless using a non-stick version. Drop spoonfuls of dough (about a tablespoon each) 2 inches apart onto the cookie sheets and bake for 12-16 minutes, based on how chewy or crunchy you like your cookies.
*These would also make a great neighbor/new baby/holiday gift! I have refrigerated the dough in a Ziploc Container and it keeps really well! You could easily add a sweet note, or tie a bow with fabric around the container.
