I had a nice few hours of PEACE & QUIET while I was able to get all three of my kids to nap at once!
I decided to have a “Zen” baking session to decompress a little!
Made one of my personal favorites…
*Fluffy White Chocolate Chip Cookie Cakes*
(These have a walnut option because I like them but my kids don’t!)
1/2 cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter (melted)
3/4 cups packed brown sugar
3/4 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs (room temperature)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon fine salt
3/4 of a (12oz) bag of white chocolate morsels
(1/2 to 1 cup of chopped walnuts)
*Method of Preparation*
Preheat oven to 375 and place rack to middle of oven.
Be sure to use an oven thermometer… I have to set my over to 365 in order to get 375!
Get dry ingredients ready first so you can set them to the side.
Take your 2 1/4 cups of flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder & 1 teaspoon salt… combine (sift) into a large bowl.
*Tip… if you’re using a salted butter in your ingredients, subtract your salt measurement to 3/4 teaspoon.
Slice butter up and place in a microwave safe bowl and cover.
Cook on 50% power for approx. 1 minute
Poor 1/2 cup melted butter, 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 2 large eggs & 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract into large mixing bowl.
With a wisk, wisk all ingredients until it’s a fluffy mix and light brown.
Switch to either your mixer tool (or spoon) and slowly mix/fold in dry ingredients.
Be sure not to over mix.
With a spoon, fold in your 3/4 (12oz) bag of white chocolate morsels.
If you want walnuts in your cookies, add 1 cup now!
Now your cookie dough is complete!
Grab a decent amount of dough (1 overfilled tablespoon) and squeeze/roll dough into dough balls.
Place evenly distributed on a cookie sheet that’s covered with parchment paper.
Place in oven on middle rack and cook for 11-13 minutes (11 for more chewy 13 for crisper)
Once cooking is complete, IMMEDIATELY take cookie off sheet and place on a cooling rack that’s been covered with paper towel.
This is when I add my walnuts in, so that I can enjoy the cookies MY WAY!
Take the rest of your dough and add about 1/2 cup of walnuts.
Follow same steps as before…
And there you have it… your Fluffy White Chocolate Chip Cookie Cakes
Make sure to store them in an air tight container.
