Meet the new chocolate chipper on the block. The Inside-Out Chocolate Chip Cookie is buttery, sweet, intensely chocolatey and studded with white baking chips for a fun twist on the classic. And as much as we love all that flavor, the texture of this cookie might be its greatest asset. It’s crispy on the outside and tender on the inside--a combination that we consider the ideal cookie texture. The secret to achieving it? Using two kinds of fat: butter and shortening. An all-butter cookie will brown nicely but tends to spread (sometimes, too much). Shortening curbs that tendency to spread, so you get the best of both worlds: a cookie that’s perfectly caramelized and shaped just right (not too flat or too round). So next time you’re out of semi-sweets, but still want a chocolate chip cookie, give your regular recipe a rest. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed with this inside-out version.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Double the chocolate decadence by substituting 1 1/2 cups semisweet or milk chocolate chips for the white baking chips.
  • tip 2
    Make this type of cookie a little faster with a pouch of Betty Crocker™ double chocolate chunk cookie mix made with semisweet chocolate chunks. Just stir in 1/2 cup each white baking chips and chopped nuts before baking.
  • tip 3
    Wondering what the difference is between regular cocoa powder, Dutch cocoa powder and dark cocoa powder? You’re not alone.
