White Chocolate Chip Cookies

White chocolate chip cookies are such a wonderfully chewy, soft, and delicious treat year-round and you can whip them up and have them baking in no time.

The Best Homemade Cookies

The soft white chocolate chip cookies are chewy and have the sweetest chocolatey flavor.

The recipe is a very typical recipe that is similar to a chocolate chip cookie recipe, but with a little bit more vanilla extract and a tad more flour.

The result is a delicious cookie that is perfect for gift-giving, cookie exchange parties, or just eating at home.

These are especially good right out of the oven. We just couldn’t resist slipping a few warm cookies on our plate and standing there next to the oven eating them.

Oh, they were soooo good.

How To Make The White Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Start by adding the flour, baking soda, and salt to a bowl, whisk together, and set aside.

Two sticks of softened butter in a glass bowl.

Add the softened butter to a large bowl.

I say this all the time, but if you forgot to set your butter out to soften, it’s ok.

I have a setting on my microwave that will allow me to gently soften butter without melting it.

But, if you don’t have a microwave setting, you can mix it with the hand mixer for a minute more or so to get it creamy.

Refrigerate The Dough

I refrigerate the dough for at least an hour before baking the cookies because it keeps them from spreading too much while they bake.

If you don’t refrigerate them, they are most likely going to end up being a blob of a cookie and spreading too thin while they bake.

After refrigerating the dough, scoop it out onto a cookie sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes at 375-degrees until the cookies are golden brown.

Can I freeze the cookie dough?

Yes, and I would suggest rolling the cookie dough into balls and placing them into a freezer-safe container, that way you can pull them straight out of the freezer and bake them.

Be sure to give them a few more minutes to bake if you are taking them straight from the freezer to the oven.

The cookies can be frozen for about two months. It’s great to be able to make them in advance, freeze them, and then pull them out around the holidays and bake them, so you’re not in a rush.

You can also bake the cookies first and then freeze them. You can freeze them for about one month.

Can I store the cookies on the counter?

Yes, you can store them on the counter, just make sure they are in a sealed container. The cookies should last for about three days unless you eat them all first!

And that is an easy thing to do!
