But I bet he would sneakily swipe one of these cookies when you (or the cameras) weren't looking. Who am I talking about? Jared Fogle, of course! Of Subway® diet fame. His story is amazing, but I've gotta tell ya--as much as I love me some Subway® sandwich, I couldn't eat two veggie subs a day for more than a few days. I could however, eat one of their cookies every day. Hmmm...will it be chips or two cookies with my meal? If you've ever wanted both options, make a batch of these cookies and stash one away in your pocket the next time you go out for some Subway®. These taste eerily like their white chocolate macadamia nut cookies, only with chocolate chunks instead of nuts.
Recipe: Five Star Chocolate Chip Cookies, by Land O'Lakes.
I used a 12 oz. bag of white chocolate chips plus about 8 oz. chocolate chips. Mine didn't look like the ones in the recipe photo, but they were still very good. These puppies were big-- about 3.5" around--but flatter than I expected. Right after baking, they seemed crisper than normal. Very crisp. Oh snap! (literally!) I feared I'd overbaked, but the bottoms were still very pale so I didn't know what went wrong. With a sad sigh I tucked them away in a plastic tub and went to bed. The next morning the texture was perfect--crispy yet chewy and unexpectedly Subwayesque!
