White Chip Chocolate Cookies

This recipe comes practically directly off the back of the bag of Nestle white chips.  Technically,these “morsels”, as they are called by Nestle, are not actually white chocolate as they don’t contain cocoa butter, a derivative of cocoa (instead they use an cheap substitute of hydrogenated vegetable oils such as palm kernel which are in these and they also don’t have any of the “good” qualities of chocolate like antioxidants), but, oh well, they are still tasty.  I did add a bit of cinnamon to the recipe in addition to Craisins.

White Chip Chocolate Cookies

  • 2 and 1/4 cups AP (all-purpose) flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup  baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups white morsels (like Nestle)
  • 1 cup Craisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine flour, cinnamon, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a mall bowl.  Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla in large mixer bowl until creamy.  Add eggs, one at  a time, beating well after each addition.  Gradually beat in flour mixture.  Stir in morsels and Craisins.  Drop by well-rounded teaspoons onto an ungreased cookies sheet.

Bake 9-11 minutes or until centers are set.  Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, and then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

  1. Those look delicious! About ten years ago, I visited a health food store where the owner had baked classic chocolate chip cookies with turbinado sugar, then added Craisins. They were incredible. That makes me want to try these. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  2. I noticed that about the white morsels when I tried them once too. I was like hey…aren’t you sneaky…they aren’t actually white chocolate, but they didn’t say white chocolate! I just grabbed it off the shelf not really paying attention. These cookies look great….LOVE the addition of cranberries!

  3. You know those recipes on bags are quite often very good. These look great.

  4. I just wanted to say “hello” and let you know that I enjoyed catching up on all your posts that I missed while traveling in Europe. I think the cookies sound good with the added craisins. I also enjoyed your posts on Florida…sounds like you had a great time.

  5. You never know what you are going to find on the back of bag from the store. 😉 Delicious looking cookies.
