Print Recipe


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 120 grams
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder 2 grams
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder 42 grams
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt 1.5 grams
  • ½ cup unsalted butter 113 grams, room temperature (1 stick)
  • ½ cup brown sugar 107 grams
  • ½ cup granulated sugar 100 grams
  • 1 large egg 50 grams, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 4 grams
  • 1 tablespoon milk 14 grams, room temperature
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips 170 grams

For Topping

  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips 43 grams


  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cocoa, and salt. Set aside.
    1 cup all-purpose flour, ½ teaspoon baking powder, ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder, ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Mix in the egg and vanilla.
    ½ cup unsalted butter, ½ cup brown sugar, ½ cup granulated sugar, 1 large egg, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Add the flour mixture and mix to combine. Beat in the milk. The cookie dough will be quite thick.
    1 tablespoon milk
  • Fold in the white chocolate chips.
    1 cup white chocolate chips
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and chill for at least 3 hours.
  • Remove cookie dough from the fridge and allow to sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Shape the dough into 16 balls. Place the dough balls on the baking sheet at least 2 inches apart. With your palm, gently press down on each dough ball to flatten slightly. Top the cookies with additional white chocolate chips.
    ¼ cup white chocolate chips
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.



  • Before transferring the cookies to a wire rack, allow them to cool on the baking sheet for at least 5 minutes. That way, they won't break when you move them.
  • Want even more flavor? Try adding flavored chips like butterscotch, espresso, or dark chocolate chips along with the white chocolate chips.
  • To make sure the butter fluffs, let it adjust to room temperature before using. Do NOT melt the butter or use cold butter - it will not fluff unless it's softened completely.
Storage: Store white chocolate chip cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
