Recipe – Reverse Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sometime after I got married, my mom discovered this recipe.  It became one of her standard recipes for the massive Christmas cookie bake that she and Dad did for years. I loved these cookies from the very first bite, and I started calling them Reverse Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are a yummy, moist chocolate cookie, almost brownie-like, with vanilla/white chips. Add the walnuts or pecans if you like. I love nuts, but I never add them to these.

The instructions may seem a bit labor intensive as you read over them, but they really aren’t.  Be sure to allow enough time for the dough to chill, though.  As with most drop cookie recipes, feel free to increase the recipe multiple times for big batches.

Reverse  Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup butter
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon soda
pinch salt
3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
12 oz. white (or vanilla) chips (I like the Guittard brand best)
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Melt the butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips together over low heat.  Sift together the flour, soda and salt.  Set aside. Beat together lightly the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Stir the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture.  Pour into the flour mixture and stir until combined.

Cool in the fridge.

Stir in the white chips and nuts.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake in 350° over for 10-12 minutes.  Let stand on cookie sheet for 1-2 minutes and then remove to cooling rack.  Makes 4 -5 dozen.
