Chocolate and white chocolate chip cookies






Iam on a baking spree nowadays.I made this batch of chocolate with white chocolate chip cookies during the winter break of my son.
Ive always loved eating white chocolate over the normal  dark chocolate because it is creamier and  the taste is somewhat intense..But its is a pity that white chocolate are not officially chocolates since they do not contain chocolate liquor.They are  made up of cocoa butter and sugar.

Ingredients:

Allpurpose Flour -  1 cup

Cocoa Powder - 1/4 cup

Baking powder - 1/2 tsp

Large egg - 1

Unsalted Butter softened at room temperature - 1/2 cup(1 stick)

Sugar - 1/4 cup

Light brown sugar - 1/2 cup

Salt - 1/8 tsp

Vanilla extract - 1 tsp

White chocolate chunks or chips - 1 1/2 cup


Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and place rack in center of oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy (2-3 minutes). Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until incorporated. First sift together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and salt and then add to the butter and egg mixture. Mix just until incorporated. Fold in the the chocolate chips.
Using a small ice cream scoop or two spoons , place about 1 1/2 tablespoons of batter on the prepared baking sheet, spacing about 2 inches (5 cm) apart.



Bake for approximately 8 minutes or until the the cookies are still soft in the center but are firm around the edges.



Remove from oven and let cookies cool on baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes about 24 - 3 inch round cookies.
