  7. Place on the prepared baking sheets, leaving 2″ between them.

Tips from our bakers

  • If you like a chewier, moister, “bendy” cookie, add 2 tablespoons (1 3/8 ounces) corn syrup to the dough. The cookies will spread out a little more and be 1/4″ thick once they’re baked.
  • For rollout cookies, make the dough with 3 1/2 cups flour; place the dough in a plastic bag, flatten it into a disk, and chill for 1 hour before rolling it out and cutting. Bake the cookies for 8 minutes, until golden brown at the edges. The recipe will make 6 dozen 2″ cookies.
  • For a crisper cookie, flatten the balls of dough to 1/2″ thick with the bottom of a drinking glass before baking. Check the cookies at 8 minutes to make sure they’re not becoming too brown.

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Over a pot filled with 2 inches of simmering water, place a metal or glass bowl and add butter. Stir until melted halfway and add white chocolate chips. Stir until just melted and remove from heat (don’t worry if it separates). Set aside.
  2. Whip eggs with sugar and vanilla with electric beaters or in a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, until pale and thick, about 5 minutes. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Whisk melted chocolate into egg mixture until incorporated. Whisk in flour mixture and stir in semisweet chocolate chips. Cover batter with plastic and chill for at least 4 hours before baking.
  4. Preheat oven to 325 °F.

Bake for 18-20 minutes. To test doneness, lift a cookie off the tray – if it comes off cleanly, then cookies are done.
