Chocolate Cookies with White Chocolate Chips Recipe

I have a little grand daughter who will be 7 years old in a few short weeks and she loves to help me cook and bake. Obviously at her age, we do simple recipes together and baking a big batch of homemade cookies is one of her favorites! Having children help in the kitchen teaches them responsibility, improves their math skills and teaches them that cooking and baking is fun! Even at the age of 7...they can learn a lot and it's great for bonding time with Grandma too!

For a decadent treat...make a vanilla sundae and crumble up two of these cookies into your sundae and drizzle hot fudge over-the-top. Oh my gosh...so good!

Chocolate Cookies with White Chocolate Chips Recipe

2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup Hershey's cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 cups butter, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Stir together the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. In another bowl, beat together the softened butter and the granulated sugar with an electric mixer until creamy. Add in the large eggs and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in the flour mixture until everything is well combined. Hand stir in the white chocolate chips until combined.

Drop the batter by tablespoonful onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven for 8-9 minutes or until done. Don't over-bake them! They will be soft in the center. Remove and let cool for one minute on the sheet before moving them to a wire rack to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container.

Note: These cookies freeze well. Let cool and then package into containers or freezer bags. They will freeze for up to 3 months.

This is a simple delicious, but sounds truly delicious. I might add some hazelnuts because I think they go well with white chocolate chips.
