Variations

A few variations to try in this recipe include:

  • Use all granulated sugar or all brown sugar (instead of using both) to make things simpler. The texture of the cookies will change, however, so give it a try and see what you like best.
  • Use regular chocolate chips instead of white chocolate chips, if that's what you have handy.
  • For softer, chewier cookies, bake for about 9 minutes.
  • Add 1/2 cup of peanut butter to your cookie batter to vary the flavor.
  • Add 1/2 cup of walnuts to your batter for some extra crunch.
  • Try mixing 1/2 cup of coconut shavings into your cookie batter.
