Jared Would NOT Approve.

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.

Recipe Notes:
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! 


  1. I worked at Subway in highschool and we used premade cookie dough baked straight from the freezer. That may've been part of why the cookies stay soft inside. I ate at least 3 of the white chocolate mac cookies a day all summer, no joke!

  2. they sound good! I love the mix of white and semi sweet chocolate in cookies.
