Recipe type: Cookies
Cuisine: American
Serves: 66 cookies
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1½ tsp. cornstarch
  • ¾ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1½ tsp. white vinegar
  • 1½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp red food coloring
  • 1½ cups white chocolate chips, divided
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl; add flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Mix until combined; set a side.
  4. In a large bowl; beat together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy; about 3 minutes. Add egg and egg yolk, beat until combined. Add vinegar, vanilla extract and food coloring; beat until combined.
  5. Carefully add flour mixture and beat just until combined. Fold in 1 cup white chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop 1 teaspoon of batter and place 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Add about 4 or 5 additional white chocolate chips to the dough. Be careful not to push to hard. (Note: if you place chips upside down, the tops won't turn brown)
  7. Bake in oven for 8 - 9 minutes, just until lightly golden. Take cookies out of oven and let them rest for 2 minutes on baking sheet, then place on cooling rack to cool completely.
  8. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
In between baking each batch, chill the cookie dough in the refrigerator. Adapted from The Sweet Life.
