Ingredients for Pepperidge Farms Sausalito Cookies

  • butter
  • sugar
  • brown sugar
  • flour
  • baking soda
  • vanilla
  • eggs
  • high quality milk chocolate chips
  • macadamia nuts

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • It is important to use the “scoop-and-swap” method for measuring flour. Otherwise, you will end up with too much flour and the cookies will become too dense. So, instead of pressing the flour to the sides of the container to flatten the flour, sweep the excess flour off the top, and scrape a knife across the measuring cup to level it.
  • For these cookies, it is recommended that you use the best quality milk chocolate available.

Pepperidge Farms Sausalito Cookies Recipe Card


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts


  1. First, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Then, in a large mixing bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until the mixture is creamy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition. Gradually, whisk in the flour mixture. Then, add the chocolate chips and nuts.
  5. Drop onto an ungreased baking sheet using a rounded tablespoon.

FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

What is the difference between a Sausalito cookie from a regular chocolate chip cookie?

The main difference: Sausalito cookies contain milk chocolate. Meanwhile, most chocolate chip cookies use semi-sweet or dark chocolate. These cookies are also known for having macadamia nuts, which gives them a distinctive flavor.

Can I use another type of chocolate to make these cookies?

Yes! You can also use semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips. White chocolate chips are also a possible option, but it will have a different flavor.

If I don’t like nuts, can I just omit them?

You can leave out the nuts if you aren’t a fan of it (or, if you are allergic). They will still taste great, but the cookies may be less flavorful.

Why are my cookies coming out flat?

Your cookies may not come out flat for a variety of reasons: too much flour, baking cookies at an incorrect temperature, or baking them for too long. So, make sure that you use the “scoop-and-swap” method to measure flour. If necessary, calibrate your oven.

Can I freeze these cookies?

These cookies can be frozen. They will last for approximately two months in the freezer. But make sure they are completely thawed before you serve them.
