Chocolate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Once again, who doesn't love Ina Garten? If you want to make something delicious and amazing, Ina's recipes is a great place to search. I saw these cookies on Barefoot Contessa and they look absolutely scrumptious. Sometimes I feel like making cookies can be monotonous but there was something about this cookie that helped me get out of my cookie rut. Similar to what I said in my Chocolate Cake post, it is important to use quality ingredients such as cocoa, vanilla, and white chocolate. These cookies had a rich chocolate flavor and chewy inside. What makes these cookies so delicious is the combination of the chocolate. The texture is exactly what a cookie should be, a crisp exterior and a gooey and chewy center. I'm ending this post so I can go and grab a cookie!

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 extra-large eggs, room temperature

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. Cream the butter and both sugars until light an fluffy in the bowl of an electric mixer
3. Add the vanilla, then the eggs, one at a time, and mix well
3. Add the cocoa and mix again
4. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to cocoa butter mixture on low speed until just combined. Fold in white chocolate
5. Drop the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make rounded tablespoons. 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 th pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
