Sometimes, when I go to the mall to eat, I have a cinnamon sugar pretzel for lunch, then I head over to the cookie place for dessert.
Welcome to my brain, where dough covered in sugar still qualifies as lunch BECAUSE if you left the sugar off and put salt on it…see?? Why should a little bit of sugar change the whole meal???
I can justify practically anything. It’s a talent.
The only problem with that cookie place is, the cookies cost infinity dollars. I’m fairly certain they grind up diamonds and use it as flour, because there is no other way it would make sense for cookies to cost that much. By the time I grab a few cookies and an Icee, I’m more or less out a pair of shoes.
My FAVORITE cookies from The Great American Cookie Company are Domino Cookies. They’re super duper chocolatey with big chunks of white chocolate and a delicious factor of fourteen trillion.
And now that I’ve made them at home, I can save my cookie money for shoes.
- 1 1/4 cup butter, slightly softened
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 3/4 cup Dutch Process cocoa powder (I used Hershey Special Dark)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 12 oz white chocolate, cut roughly into chunks
- Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
- In the bowl of your mixer, cream butter and sugar on medium speed until fluffy and light in color -- about one minute. Add eggs one at time, beating after each. Beat in vanilla.
- With the mixer set on low speed, slowly add flour mixture until beat in completely. Fold in white chocolate chunks.
- Scoop with a large cookie scoop onto prepared baking sheets, 3 inches apart. Bake for about 9 minutes, or until edges are just set. Middles will not look done -- they will set upon cooling.
