I am a person who enjoys cake and brownies over cookies. Majority of cookies don't really tempt me, at all. There are a few exceptions, like these sugar cookies and these rocky road cookies. But ESPECIALLY this recipe of white chocolate chip cookies.
Their name is really deceiving too. There's actually quite a bit more ingredients than just white chocolate chips. Theres a little but of oatmeal (which gives it that mild warm nutty taste) and little bit of coconut, and of course creamy chocolate.
They're not a complicated cookie to make, and they are a cookie everyone loves!!
How to make white chocolate chip cookies
You start by creaming together butter, sugar and shortening. Why shortening? Shortening is a great baking agent! I don't use it very often but once in a while I use it for specific recipes. Shortening helps the cookies to rise, gives them a great texture with out them being too crunchy or two soft. Just right.
Mix all your ingredients together as directed. As you can see I love using Bob's Red Mill. They are such quality ingredients! I also like to use a cookie scoop to scoop out the dough- my cookie scoop is also from the bob's red mill website.
Dress up cookies for the holidays
Bake the cookies and feel free to add a little bit more for extra sparkle. haha. Its adds a fun little crunch to the cookie or whatever you are baking too!
