These White Chocolate Chunk Cookies are a Mrs. Field’s Copycat, but I think they are even better than the real thing!
Look, Ma! I’m posting a recipe for cookies! SHOCKER!
No sarcasm here… I really am shocked. I don’t really do cookies. I mean, yes, I DO make cookies, but not for the blog because they’re gone as soon as they come out of the oven.
Scratch that. Not all cookies are demolished as soon as they come out. These Banana Oats Chocolate Chip Cookies lasted a bit longer because some people don’t like oats. (I know! I was just as surprised!)
The issue, really, is that I have two very, very picky eaters. One of them is a 6-foot-3 male – aka, my husband. The other one is an almost 5-year old girl – aka, my daughter. These two drive me banaynays when it comes to eating-time. “Is that meat in there? Is that vegetables in there? Is that food on my plate??” …Sheeeesh! Gimme a break!
Then there’s me and Aleksandra, my about to be 2-year old. Our motto is, Open Mouth —> Insert.
BUT, when we make cookies, ain’t nobody complainin’! The skies open, the sun shines, and the two picky ones stuff their lovely faces with sweet-things.
These White Chocolate Chunk (Macadamia Nut) Cookies are a classic. They’re exactly like every cookie I ate every day for 3 years when I worked right near a Mrs. Field’s Cookie-Shop. They are sweet, they are soft as pillows, and they are addictive.
Swear, I’m going to wait a few weeks before I make them again because I don’t wanna scare all the pool goers this summer.
I didn’t believe that I could ever recreate Mrs. Field’s cookies, but with the help of this world wide web, you can pretty much do anything you like!
Truthfully, I could not believe how good these were. Melt-in-your-mouth good. I wish I had more!
I think the secret to these cookies, or any cookies for that matter, is to remove them from the oven before they are done baking.
Also? If you look at them closely, you will see that quality white chocolate and butter are all you really need to make these cookies. And no nuts. I just didn’t include the nuts. It was a texture thing. Forgive me.
