This recipe is insanely similar to another cookie recipe I have posted, Double Chocolate Chip Cookies. But I made both of these recipes in one week, (the former for my husband's Halloween potluck at work, then this recipe for a Bake Sale) and decided I preferred this recipe.
I made these to sell at a Bake Sale for my Mom's Club, and my friend who picked up the cookies confessed to having sampled one. These have the effect of calling to people!
My husband and kids loved these, and my son said "These look like the cookies from Subway!" which for some reason, made them taste even better. It was a sad day when he realized my healthy lunch place served cookies. If you want them to be even closer to Subway's, add half white chocolate chips and half chocolate chips.
White Chocolate Fudge Cookies
recipe from Barefoot Contessa
Makes 2 dozen large cookies
1/2 pound unsalted butter (2 sticks)
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 extra-large eggs
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 pounds white chocolate coarsely chopped (or 2 cups white chocolate chips)
Preheat the oven to 350º.
Cream the butter and 2 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 chopped white chocolate.
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. If making small cookies, bake about 10-12 minutes.
