I’m always looking for good chocolate chip cookie recipes. I have my favorite 2 recipes and they are the best, so I don’t know why I keep trying other recipes.
I came across this copycat Disneyland ccc the other day and gave it a try. I mean, who doesn’t like Disneyland….it represents everything good and happy! The thing that really caught my attention was the powdered sugar instead of the usual granulated sugar and also the sugar crystal sprinkles in the dough. You can get them pretty much anywhere, but Michael’s or Hobby Lobby has them in the cookie decorating section. They are just big crunchy clear sprinkles that you would put on cookies or cupcakes. If you can’t find them, you can use turbinado sugar. It’s the crunch of the course textured sugar that sets these cookies apart from other ccc’s.
It is a good cookie….a bit on the cakey side. If that’s the type of cookie you like, then you will love these. They don’t spread out really flat like a lot of ccc’s do. The crunch of the course sugar gives these a little bit of crunch but the cookie is soft, not crispy. I do like these, but I like others better. But I think you should try these and let me know what you think!
Copycat Disneyland Chocolate Chip Cookie
1 cup (2 sticks) soft butter
1 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 Tblsp water
1 tsp vanilla
2 2/3 cup AP flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup sugar crystal sprinkles or turbinado sugar
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Cream the butter and sugars together until well mixed. Mix in the egg, water and vanilla. Mix in the flour, salt and baking soda, just until combined. Don’t overmix.
Gently stir in the sugar crystals and the chocolate chips. Chill the dough for an hour. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Heat oven to 350.
Drop large scoops of dough onto the baking sheet…approx. 1/4 cup scoops……6 scoops a sheet. Bake for approximately 13-18 minutes, depending on how hot your oven runs. They should be golden brown. Cool completely. They taste much better once cooled completely.
Makes 18 good sized cookies.
