I found this recipe on Cookies and Cups and had to try it. I'm normally not a huge fan of white chocolate and always end up trying to use up the white chocolate chips I buy on sale (just in case...). Even though this recipe calls for white chocolate chunks, I figured the 2/3 package of white chocolate chips I had left would do. I brought these cookies to work, and they were a big hit. Other than the chocolate chips for chocolate chunks, the only other change I made was using margarine instead of butter.
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 cups flour
20 oz coarsely chopped white chocolate (2 1/2 - 3 cups)
In bowl of stand mixer cream together butter and both sugars for 2 minutes in medium speed.
Turn speed to low and add in eggs and vanilla. Turn mixer back up to medium and beat until smooth, about 20 seconds.
Turn mixer back to low and add in salt, baking soda, baking powder and flour, mixing until just combined.
Fold in white chocolate chunks.
Chill dough for 24-36 hours.
When ready to bake preheat oven to 375°
Line baking sheet with parchment paper and form dough into heaping tablespoon sized balls, placing 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
Bake for 6-8 minutes until golden around edges. Don't overbake.
Allow to cool on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes before transferring to wire rack to finish cooling.
Yields 3 dozen.
