In Search Of: the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie Part 31: Maple Walnut White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found this recipe on another food blog.

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or maple extract (we used vanilla)
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (omitted because we use salted butter)
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips (we used semi-sweet)
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. In a large bowl, beat butter, brown sugar and maple syrup until combined. Add eggs and vanilla (or maple extract).

3. In another bowl, mix the flour and baking soda. Add to the wet ingredients. (The mixture seems a little dry, but mixing it enough will combine everything.)

4. Add chocolate chips and walnuts.

5. Drop spoonfuls onto baking sheet. Bake 10-12 min.

Verdict: We made 4 dozen plus 1 cookie, one short of the 50 we were aiming for. I am not sure if substituting the semi-sweet for white chocolate chips through the taste of the cookies off, but we found the walnuts to be too overpowering a taste in this recipe. We couldn’t even taste the maple syrup (the real stuff!).
