*Makes 2-3 dozen cookies

INGREDIENTS:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup natural, unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened

3/4 cup granulated sugar

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs

7 ounces white chocolate, chopped (or use 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips)

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 350° F. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract until creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Stir in white chocolate. Drop by well-rounded tablespoons onto parchment-lined baking sheets.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes until the edges are set but centers are still soft. Cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
