How to make husband and wife equally happy

Wally really likes chocolate chip cookies. I'm not their biggest fan simply because I don't love bittersweet or dark chocolate. However, I do love white chocolate. I could never have enough of it! So I thought that black and white chocolate chip cookies would have been the perfect "compromise" to make both happy. They really did the trick :)

Of this recipe I also love the mixing of brown and white sugar. It gives them that something extra that make them already a favourite in the house.

Black and White Chocolate Chips Cookies

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
6-ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
6-ounces white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars. Beat in eggs one at a time, along with the vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture (I like making these cookies by hand but if you are used to make them with an electric mixer you should beat it at a low speed). Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 350F for 12 minutes or until the cookies are lightly browned at the edges.

Let them cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
They can be easilty stored in an airtight container.

Makes 3 dozen cookies.
