Cookie Recipe II

White Chocolate Chip (Southern Living )
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 - 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 -1/4 cups + 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 - 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 pkg (12 0z) white chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and sugars together until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating well to combine. Combine flour; baking soda and salt in a small bowl; gradually add to butter mixture, beating just until blended. Mix in chips and nuts. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto un-greased cookies sheets. Bake for 10-14 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an air-tight container for 3-4 days or may be frozen for up to 3 months. Yield: 5 dozen
Note: For the next two weeks -- it will be baking and baking -- with a little more baking and/or candy/bread making thrown in for variety. Just letting you all know what to expect.
