Bakeshop Cookies

This delicious cookie was inspired by a recipe I found on the Hershey's website after my visit to the Hershey store in Chicago. These perfectly crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside cookies tasted fresh a couple of days after baking. Next time I will add in more of the dark chocolate, though.

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1 dark chocolate bar (4 ounces, cut into chunks)

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Cream butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla in large bowl until thoroughly blended. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually stir in the flour mixture.
Mix in the white chocolate chips and chocolate bar chunks.
Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 11 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet and move to wire rack to cool completely.
Yields 2 dozen cookies.
