Cookie Adventure! :)

I had an amazingly good cookie about 5 years ago.  It was a chocolate dough cookie with what tasted like oreo filling inside in little chunks.  I was in love with the taste, but not with the price.  

Since I tasted this delicious cookie, I've been on a mission to find out what it was and how to make it myself.  I finally figured it out!  

It's a chocolate, white chocolate chip cookie.  If you've never had it (or even if you have) here's the recipe below.  Enjoy :)

Chocolate, White Chocolate Chip Cookies!

·         1/2 cup salted butter, at room temperature (important!)
·         3/4 cup white granulated sugar
·         1 large egg
·         1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
·         1 cup all purpose flour
·         1/4 cup cocoa powder
·         1/2 teaspoon baking soda
·         1/8 teaspoon salt
 1 and 1/2 cups white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F 
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars until fully incorporated. Add the egg and vanilla extract and blend.

In a smaller bowl add the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, and salt and whisk until the dry ingredients are well mixed. 

Add about half of the flour mixture to the butter and egg mixture, incorporate, and then add the rest until all ingredients are blended well.  Now add the white chocolate chips until they're all throughout the dough.

Using a small ice cream scoop or two spoons, place about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the cookie mix recipe onto a foil covered cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.  Press the cookies down until about half the height.

Bake for approximately 8 minutes or until the cookies are still soft in the center but are firm around the edges. Remove from oven and let cookies cool on baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

This recipe makes about 24, 3 inch round chocolate, white chocolate chip cookies.
