Big, irregular chunks of white chocolate look great in contrast to the dark, bittersweet chocolate in these cookies. Prep and cook time: 45 minutes, plus at least 1 hour to chill.
12 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
3/4 cup (3/8 lb.) butter, cut into chunks
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 to 10 ounces coarsely chopped white chocolate or 2 cups white chocolate chips
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 325°. In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water (but not touching it), stir bittersweet chocolate and butter until smooth, 5 minutes. Remove bowl from over water; whisk in sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
In another bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to chocolate mixture and stir until well blended. Stir in white chocolate. Cover and chill dough until firm, at least 1 hour.
Shape dough into 2-inch balls and place about 3 inches apart on buttered or cooking parchment-lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.
Bake until set at the edges but still soft in the center, 12 to 15 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking.
Let cool for 5 minutes on sheets; transfer to racks to cool completely.
These turned out great and I will definitely be making these again. The white chocolate chips were perfect in this chocolate cookie. ***NOTE*** Ignore the comment about the Bisquick. Someone evidently either (a) rated the wrong recipe or (b) decided to completely ruin this recipe by trying to use Bisquick instead of going to the store for flour. I don't know why anyone would do such a thing to an awesome recipe.
This is late, but I just seen your review. There is NO Bisquick in the recipe. So, if that's what you used in place of flour and it didn't turn out, it's your fault. NOT the recipe's fault. My suggestion would be, step out of the kitchen, very slowly, put the spatula down and walk away. Take a deep breath and RE-read your recipes.
These cookies are very good (but quite rich!) They were the perfect treat for Santa with a tall glass of milk.
I found the recipe instructions easy to follow and the cookies turned out as I expected. The only glitch was that I chilled the dough too long (about 3 hours instead of the recommended 1 hour) and it was tough to form balls -- I had to let it warm up a little bit first.
Not sure what the previous reviewer meant when she said the cookies tasted like Bisquick. There is no Bisquick in this recipe.
I review all recipes before I attempt to make them. There were only 3 reviews and they were all good. The cookies did come out soft and the recipes makes a lot, but all I could taste was bisquick. It didn't taste right at all. No one I had try them liked them...they were just funny with the white choc and bisquick together. I didn't even include them in my cookies baskets as planned :(
