Tri Colored Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you love chocolate chip cookies, then you would love these. They consist of three different types of cookies: matcha white chocolate, double chocolate and original.

You can change up this recipe by making three of your favorite cookies and mixing them together. This is quite time consuming as you are essentially making three cookies instead of one.

For this recipe, I decided to make browned butter for all the cookies. This gave a nutty flavor, but you need to do this ahead of time to allow for it to cool. In a pot melt butter and then turn to medium heat to simmer until the butter browns. This will take 5-10 minutes. Make sure the milk solids don’t burn. Once the butter is ready, set aside and allow to cool.

The hardest part of this recipe was setting up all the ingredients. Make sure you do not mix up the ingredients or work on one cookie at a time.

For the first step I beat the butter and sugar together for all recipes.

For the OG chocolate chip cookies I used my go to recipe: Crazy Sprinkle Cookies . The only change I made was swap regular butter for browned butter. See my other post for detailed directions.

For the double chocolate, add cocoa powder to the flour to get a nice dark chocolate base.

Add the creamed butter and egg to the flour and mix well. This was my thickest dough.

Add dark chocolate chips.

For the matcha cookies, I mixed the matcha powder with the flour. You will need to use good quality matcha. Most recipes ask for culinary grade which will help get a brighter green color but use any matcha that you can find.

Add the creamed butter to the matcha flour and then add white chocolate chips.

Now that you have all the cookie dough prepare, portion them all into scoops. Make sure they are small as I made these cookies too large. I recommend 1/2 inch scoops

I started by using my cookies scoop. But I think I would have cut each of these scoops in half.

To form these cookies, take one ball of each cookie and gently roll them together.

As a finishing touch to these cookies, I added some extra chocolate chips on top of each cookie so that they can show up after baking. Also make sure that each cookie dough can be seen at the top of the cookies.

My first attempt was done after chilling the cookies. The matcha spread a lot quicker than the other ones so they were pretty deformed. Then I decided to allow the cookies to sit a room temperature for about 20 minutes to warm up which allowed the cookies spread evenly.

Now bake the rest of the cookie and cool. Enjoy them with a warm cup of milk.

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1/2 cup of butter

  • 1 egg

Cream together the sugar and the butter until smooth and creamy. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix well.

At this time, I add in the chocolate chips.
