Double Delight Chocolate Chip Cookies

If there's one thing that I absolutely shouldn't be left alone with in a room, it's cookies. I must admit that I'm a cookie muncher, and I love Chocolate Chip Cookies. I have previously shared a favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe on the blog, and when I did a reader commented that the recipe was very similar to the one her grandmother always made, with one exception. She said her grandmother made her Chocolate Chip Cookies a little differently than most - she used a mixture of regular chocolate chips and white chocolate chips in her cookies. When I heard that idea, I knew it was one I would have to try. If one kind of chocolate chips is good, then two kinds of chips have to be twice as good.







I took my tried and true Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and added the two suggested kinds of chips, and the cookies are wonderful. Since the reader was an anonymous commenter, I don't even know who to thank.

Double Delight Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup (10 2/3 tablespoons) butter, softened
2/3 cup shortening (Crisco)
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
6 ounces white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugars, butter, shortening, eggs, and vanilla; mix until well creamed. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt to the mixture; mix until combined. Stir the chips into the dough. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart on prepared pan. Bake until light brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cool slightly; remove from pan to a cooling rack.


Give an ordinary cookie recipe a new twist by adding two kinds of chips.


I like to bake on parchment paper, but these cookies can be baked on an ungreased baking sheet if you prefer.




Be sure not to over bake, let cookies cool for a few minutes, then remove from pan to a cooling rack.




This recipe will make more than 4 dozen yummy cookies, so if you don't want that much temptation around, the recipe can be easily halved (but I never do!).

  3. I often use a combination of chips in cookies. Milk, semi sweet, white. All are delicious. These cookies look yummy.
