How to Make These Cookies
To prepare the dough for the cookies:
- Place the unsalted butter and the eggs on the counter to come to room temperature.
- In a large bowl, stir or whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, salt, baking powder, and baking powder—reserve for later.
- Add the softened unsalted butter, the white granulated sugar, and the powdered sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer. If you don't have a stand mixer, put the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and use a hand mixer.
- Cream together the unsalted butter and sugars at medium speed for a minute or two until the mixture lightens and increases in volume.
- Mix the eggs into the dough individually, and then add the vegetable oil and vanilla extract.
- With the mixer running, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in three stages. Ensure you can't see any patches of dry ingredients after each addition. It is okay if the dough is very crumbly at first. Resist the urge to add more eggs, and continue to mix until the dough becomes smooth.
- Scrape down the sides of the bowl and the paddle attachment with a silicone spatula or dough scraper. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and pop the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.
To bake the cookies:
- Five minutes before you take the dough from the fridge, preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Cover two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside for later.
- Use a quarter cup measure cup to portion the chilled cookie dough and form each into a ball with your hands.
- Place the dough balls on the prepared cookie sheets, keeping about two inches of space between each cookie and the sides.
- Bake the cookies for 14 to 16 minutes until they are lightly colored. Turn and swap the positions of the baking sheets halfway through the cooking time.
- Remove the baking sheets from the oven. Let the cookies cool for two minutes before transferring them to a wire cooling rack.
To decorate the cookies:
- While the cookies are cooling, melt the white chocolate in the microwave at 50 percent power in 15-second bursts.
- Combine the unsalted butter, powdered sugar, melted white chocolate, milk, and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer or a medium mixing bowl.
- Mix on medium with a paddle attachment until the frosting is smooth. If the frosting isn't thick enough, add more powdered sugar until it reaches a spreadable consistency.
- Use an offset spatula to spread the frosting on the cooled cookies. Leave a half-inch around the edge.
- Sprinkle the Cooke Dough Bites and mini chocolate chips on top of the cookies.
- Allow the frosting to set before serving.
What to Serve With a Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookie
While these cookies don't make great dippers, they taste lovely with a glass of ice-cold milk or a steaming hot mug of coffee or tea.
How to Store Them
After cooling the cookies on a wire rack, you can store them in an airtight container on the counter or freeze them.
If you are stacking the cookies to freeze, place a piece of parchment paper between each layer to prevent them from sticking. Take the cookies out of the freezer and defrost them in the fridge before serving.
How Long Does a Cookie Dough Cookie Last?
The frosted cookies should stay fresh for up to three days at room temperature or a month or two when frozen.
