GET BAKED: Salted White Chocolate Chip Cookies (Revised)

One of my most requested baked items from friends and family are the famous salted white chocolate chip cookies that I made from Smitten Kitchen (uhhh-mazing site, by the way, if you’re a foodie) but last night when I pulled out the ingredients to make another batch, I realized I was running low on butter and sugar and had to adapt. No problem. In fact, it was meant to be. The cookies tasted the best they have ever tasted with less sugar and butter than the normal recipe – perfectly crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. That’s right, folks, less fat and calories = more yum! I was out of oatmeal, too, so none of that is included. And instead of white chocolate chips, I used white chocolate chunks from Whole Foods’ 365 brand. Here is the recipe:

1 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 tsp table salt

3/4 stick of unsalted butter, softened (the original called for 1 and 3/4 stick)

1/4 cup of white sugar (the original called for 1 cup)

1/4 cup of packed brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup of white chocolate chip chunks
