What’s your favorite cookie?!
The soft and perfectly chewy, the forever classic vanilla cookie exploding with melty white chocolate chips.
The dark and fudgy, sinfully delicious chocolate cookie filled with bitter sweet chocolate chips.
I know, I know. Decisions can be soooo hard sometimes ;)
Luckily today I’m making things easy for you. No need to play favorites and make choices. With this recipe you get the best of both world. Two different flavors put together in the ultime yin-yang cookie. Brilliant, right?!?
Are you as hypnotized by the chocolate/vanilla swirls as much as I am?!
These cookies are the perfect balance of two opposite. The white and the dark chocolate, the vanilla and the cocoa dough complementing and enhancing each other. What more can you ask from a cookie?!?
Making cookies from scratch is not really hard, as I’m sure you know.
This recipe starts out as any other (cream the butter with the sugars, add egg and flour…).
Then the cookie dough is divided in half. White chocolate chips are folded into half, cocoa powder and chocolate chips into the other half.
Shape the dough into two long logs, and refrigerate to harden. Shape into teardrops and put the two colors together making one big log (make sure to check out the pictures and video below to see how).
Refrigerate some more, slice in cookies and bake. For a thick cookie, make sure the dough is really cold when it goes in the preheated oven.
Then (and only then) let’s add the final touch. The opposite color chocolate chips to give the white to the yin, and the dark to the yang.
Completely balanced and perfectly complete.
