Double Chocolate White Chip Cookies are really good! They're thin, tender, and chewy. The dough is basically a good transport system for the chips, so use a top shelf brand of both chocolate and white chips (or just stick with white chips).
These cookies are pretty thin and they tend to spread. If you want a slightly thicker cookie with a more rounded shape, scoop the dough onto a piece of foil, chill the scooped dough, then roll the chilled dough balls into perfect spheres before baking. For best results use a good brand of natural (as opposed to Dutch process) cocoa powder.
