A dinner party is always fun, especially when planning the desserts and a favor for the guests to take home. Personally, I love using tulle since it has a celebratory look with a delicate texture. Wrapping cookies with tulle not only fancies up any basic cookie, but it also entices you to wonder what is really inside because the layer of semi-sheer fabric gives you just a glimpse at what’s underneath.
The tags (I chose the scallop shaped Modern Geometric style) add a personal touch. I love matching the colors in the tag to the tulle. All in all, it’s an easy and beautiful way to wrap a cookie… or two. And the recipe? It’s a favorite of mine made with delicious white chocolate chips.
- ½ pound unsalted butter at room temperature
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 extra-large eggs at room temperature
- ⅔ cup good unsweetened cocoa
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1½ white chocolate chips)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Cream the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the vanilla, then the eggs, 1 at a time, and mix well. Add the cocoa and mix again. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt and add to the chocolate with the mixer on low speed until just combined. Fold in the chopped white chocolate.
- Drop the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, using a 1¾-inch ice cream scoop or a rounded tablespoon. Dampen your hands and flatten the dough slightly. Bake for exactly 15 minutes (the cookies will seem underdone).
- Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
