Fun fact, did you know white chocolate is not chocolate? It's cocoa butter that is oftentimes even dyed white. My boss taught me that (I work at a café so it's not a big surprise). But I still love it, sorry.
Vanilla White Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup butter, room temperature
- ¾ cup light brown sugar
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
- ¾ tsp. kosher salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ½ tsp. baking powder
- 2½ cups flour
- 2 cups white chocolate chips or chunks
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Add the salt, baking soda, and baking powder and beat for 15 seconds to combine. Add the flour slowly and mix until no streaks remain. Scrape the sides of the bowl if necessary. Add the white chocolate chips and beat just briefly until mixed in, about 10 seconds.
Using a tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop balls of dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until slightly browned. Let cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before serving or removing to wire rack to cool completely.
