Eggs are a staple in my house. I pretty much never eat them for breakfast anymore, unless they are in a baked good, but for dinner, they are my jam.
I eat them scrambled, hard boiled, soft boiled, poached, baked, even puffed into one of my famous one minute omelets. I serve them with salads, roasted vegetables, tofu noodle pasta, and kale chips.
But we often forget about how important they are in baked goods. Eggs are what give cakes structure, brownies that ooey gooey fudgy deliciousness, and keep cookies crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy inside.
Plus, you all know next weekend, I’m coloring eggs for Easter. I got a marbleized coloring kit and I’m a little too excited about it.
So eggs are my kitchen hero, and they should totally be yours too.
As should these White Chocolate Chip Cookies. The first thing you should know about these cookies is that they are amazing, surpassing all my cookie expectations. The white chocolate shines through, but the depth of the brown sugar cookie is not overshadowed and made me go back for bite after bite.
The second thing that you should know about these cookies is that I baked most of them immediately after making the dough. They weren’t the prettiest cookies. You’ll see one on the top of the cookie stack in the photos. They spread and ran together. But they tasted the best.
I baked the remainder of the dough on the same pan after it had chilled in the refrigerator a few hours. Those cookies were beautiful, but they didn’t taste as good, lacking the depth in flavor of the first batch. Don’t get me wrong, they were still tasty, just not as good.
So you can choose your own baking adventure here, but I’d throw caution and looks to the wind and stick with baking them right after making. It’s all about flavor for me.
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup packed light brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 ½ cups white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and both kinds of sugar until light and fluffy. I did this by hand, but a hand or stand mixer would work as well. Beat in the eggs and vanilla bean paste until once again light and fluffy.
Add the salt, baking soda, baking powder, and flour, and mix until just combined. Stir in the white chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
Roll dough into gold ball sized balls and place about 2 inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake for about 15 minutes, until golden brown, but still soft to the touch, especially in the center. Serve warm or cool completely on tray and store in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Cookies may also be frozen, wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature about an hour or in the microwave about 1 minute.
