Do you need a “Home Run” Double Chocolate Chip cookie recipe? This cookies are a combination of white chocolate and milk chocolate. They are soft & creamy on the inside and so yummy!
Just because I have added so many healthy recipes to my blog recently does not mean we do not bake and eat these “Home Run” Chocolate Chip Cookies. I have baked a lot of cookies lately. I love having cookie dough ready to pop into the oven and bake fresh cookies for my son, Casey’s High School baseball team. Caleb is my sous chef and baker in the family. He loves to bake Chocolate Chip Cookies. He gets to pass them out after Casey’s games. There is nothing like seeing someone smile after handing them a Chocolate Chip Cookies. I also get to see the smile on Caleb’s face while passing them out. It is a win, win.
We try to mix the dough up ahead of time, scoop the cookie dough out using an ice cream scoop onto a baking sheet, and freeze the dough balls. After the cookie dough is frozen, I put the cookie dough balls in large freezer bags. This is a great way to have cookie dough ready to bake fresh cookies for games or anytime. When I get ready to bake cookies, I tease Caleb by saying do you want to bake some “Home Run” cookies. He just smiles. He truly enjoys baking and sharing his cookies with everyone.
These cookies are “Home Run” Chocolate Chip Cookies because they are filled with a combination of creamy milk chocolate and white chocolate. They are soft on the inside. See my secrets below for baking great cookies! I have also included more of our favorite cookie recipes below.

Baking Cookie Tips
- Use butter and eggs at room temperature. You should be able to leave a finger print easily in the butter.
- Whip the butter, shortening, and sugars until light and fluffy.
- Do not over mix the flour!
- Mix in the dry ingredients just until you do not any powder and everything is incorporated.
- Use parchment paper – I love parchment paper when baking. Once you remove the cookies from the oven, just slide the parchment paper off the baking sheet with the cookies still on it. This will allow them to cool.
- Use an ice cream scoop when scooping out your cookies. This way they will all be the same size and will bake evenly.
- – Scoop the cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can put the cookies closer together on the baking sheet when freezing them than when you are baking them. If you scoop the cookie dough out first and then freeze it, you do not have a problem with the dough being as hard as a rock and you cannot scoop it out of a container. After scooping out the cookie dough, place the baking pan in the freezer until the cookies are frozen. Place frozen cookies into large freezer zip lock bags and store in the freezer. This helps the cookies when baking. The cookies do not spread out so much. Also, you will have cookies on hand in case of an emergency.
- Do not over cook your cookies. Once you remove the cookies from the oven, they will continue to bake.
