Fluffy White Chocolate Chip Cookie Cakes (Walnut Option)

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!)

*Ingredients*

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.

Now set this aside.

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…

(I like the walnuts because the cookie is so sweet that the walnuts compliment the sweet with a toasty/salty flavor!)

And there you have it… your Fluffy White Chocolate Chip Cookie Cakes

Make sure to store them in an air tight container.

(Recipe makes about 2 Dozen Cookies)

Enjoy!
