Pearls ‘n Chocolate Cookies by Jana Richards

A Holiday Treat

560 ml. (2 ¼ cups) all-purpose flour
150 ml. (2/3 cup) cocoa
5 ml. (1 tsp.) baking soda
2 ml. (1/2 tsp.) salt
228 grams (1 cup) butter, softened
175 ml. (¾ cup) granulated sugar
150 ml. (2/3 cup) brown sugar, firmly packed
5 ml. (1 tsp.) vanilla
2 eggs
375 ml. (1 ½ cups) white chocolate baking pieces or chips

Preheat oven to 175 C. (350 F). In small bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; set aside. In large bowl, combine butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla; beat until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add flour mixture and stir until combined. Stir in white chocolate pieces. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cooking sheets and bake for 9-10 minutes. Allow to stand 2 minutes before removing from cookie sheets and cooling completely. 

Makes about 2 ½ to 3 dozen cookies.


Baker’s note: Makes a very stiff batter that’s hard to mix, but it all turns out okay in the end. I pulled the cookies from the oven when the tops were still slightly unset, which made a nice soft cookie. Gorgeously chocolatey!

Oh, Yum!! Those look delicious--and simple enough to make that even I should be able to do it :) As long as I don't forget about them in the oven...Not sayin' I ever do that of course! Thanks for the recipe, Jana!

Thanks Jana, I love making cookies and watching the Cookie challenge on Food Network has got me interested in making sugar cookies again so I can decorate. I like the way yours have the decoration built right in!

Thanks everybody. They are really delicious cookies. Kind of fudgy and then you get a sweet white chocolate hit. Like I said, the batter is really stiff, but the result is worth the effort!
