These cookies may sound a little strange but they are amazing. I am not a huge fan of white chocolate (it is not real chocolate in my opinion) but I love these cookies. This recipe makes a big batch. We lost count at around 55 cookies :)
1 1\2 cups softened butter
1 1\2 cups sugar
1 1\2 cups brown sugar
3 tsp. vanilla
4 1\2 plus 4 TBS. all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 12oz. bag white chocolate chips
1 cup chopped almonds
the zest of 2 oranges
Preheat oven to 350. I always forget to do this that is why I am telling you first thing.
In a large bowl beat butter and sugars till light and fluffy
Add eggs. By the way I learned how to crack eggs with one hand!! Isn't that exciting?!! :):P
and vanilla. Beat until well blended.
In another bowl combine flour
and baking soda and salt
Gradually add to creamed mixture; beating well
In a food processor chop the almonds so that they go from looking like this
to this. Add to batter
zest the oranges. oooh I love the deep orange color of the zest. Add this to the batter.
Finally add the white chocolate chips
Stir everything well
Scoop into nice round scoops onto a cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 - 14 minutes or until the edges are just beginning to turn golden brown. I cooked mine for 9 minutes. Let them cool for a minute on the cookie sheet and then transfer them to a cooling wrack. These are supposed to be soft and chewy
By the way if your try these please let me know you did and what you thought of them. I would greatly appreciate that. :):)
