This cookies are huge, nearly too big for a lunch box, but that didn't deter Miss F from taking one in her lunch every day this week. The recipe is from Ina Garten and the cookies are delicious. I understand why Miss F wanted one every single day. Now that is in Kindergarten, she has a lot more independence at lunch time. Which meant the first week of school she came home with everything healthy in her lunch uneaten. We had a talk about how I she finished her lunch, she could have the treat packed in her lunch. So far, this has worked quite well. So she continues to get lunch box treats. What is your favorite nut-free cookie recipe?
1 cup butter at room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cream the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the vanilla, then the eggs, 1 at a time, and mix well. Add the cocoa and mix again. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt and add to the chocolate with the mixer on low speed until just combined. Fold in the white chocolate chips.
Drop the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, using a 1 3/4-inch ice cream scoop or a rounded tablespoon. Dampen your hands and flatten the dough slightly. Bake for exactly 15 minutes (the cookies will seem underdone). Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
