Stacey - The Sugar Coated Cottage
Tahitian Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe. Tahitian vanilla brightens the typical cookie and the addition of both semi-sweet and white chocolate knocks it out of the park.

  • 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter room temp
  • 1 egg room temp
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Nielsen Massey Tahitian Vanilla Bean Paste or whatever brand you choose
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line two cookie sheets with parchment, set aside.
  • In bowl of mixer cream the butter until light and fluffy, add in the sugars and continue to mix until well combined.
  • Add in the egg, vanilla paste, baking powder, salt, baking powder and mix well to combine scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Slowly add in the flour with mixer on low and mix until dough forms.
  • By hand fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Scoop (I used a standard cookie scoop) cookies onto cookie sheet.
  • Bake 11-12 minutes (start checking the oven at 10 minutes in case your oven runs hotter). Edges should be golden brown, tops should be starting to brown and little cracks on the surface starting to form.
  • Let cool completely.


To get those chocolate swirls on top make sure to stick a few chocolate chips onto top of each dough ball. Bake as directed and when the cookies come out of the oven take a small spatula or the back of a small spoon and spread the melty chocolate around. Sprinkle with sprinkles or sea salt if using.
If you find your dough getting too soft you can refrigerate for 20 minutes to firm it up as needed. Baking time should still be the same.
