Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are some pretty fantastic cookies.  I really enjoy trying out new recipes I find on the back of products, which is where I found this recipe, on the package of some Ghirardelli Premium Baking Chips.

The only thing I changed up was instead of two cups of the Milk Chocolate Chips I used one cup of the Milk Chocolate and one cup of some white chocolate chips I had on hand that needed to be used.  The combo of the white and milk chocolate was pretty yumtastic...just ask my kids!

the yummies:
2 1/4 cups unsifted flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2.  Stir flour with baking soda and salt; set aside.
3.  Beat butter with sugar and brown sugar at medium speed until creamy.
4.  Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed until incorporated.
5.  Gradually blend dry mixture into cream mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts (if desired).
6.  Drop by tablespoons onto greased cookie sheets.
7.  Bake for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.


  1. I love white chocolate AND milk chocolate so this sounds like a perfect combo to me!

  2. Sounds like a perfect recipe to me. Yum!

  3. These look great!!! I totally have the packages saved from Ghirardelli chocolate for recipes I've wanted to make. Now it makes me think I should actually make something lol.

  4. These cookies look absolutely delicious!!!! I would definitely add the walnuts, because I think all cookies should have nuts of some kind. :)

  5. I wish I had added the nuts. I only had some almonds on hand and wasn't for sure how those would do. Love me some pecans or walnuts in my cookies! :)
