White choc cookies

I mean, honestly do these even need an explanation. They are so delicious and barely last a couple of days in our house. You can add nuts like macadamias or walnuts but I find these are perfect just as they are. Nom nom nom….

What you will need

3 cups plain flour

3/4 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

175 grams butter softened

2 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

350 grams white chocolate chips

1 large bowl

1 medium bowl

wooden spoon

metal spoon

2 large baking trays

non stick baking paper

wire rack

spatula

  1. Pre-heat oven to 170 degrees fan forced
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the soft butter and eggs until smooth. It might look like it is not combining 100% but thats fine, just get the butter and eggs broken up enough that they will mix easily with the sugar
  3. Add the white sugar and brown sugar and mix until well combined
  4. Add vanilla and combine
  5. In a separate medium sized bowl measure out flour and add salt and baking soda, mix briefly to combine
  6. Add flour to wet mixture a bit at a time until all combined
  7. Add the white chocolate chips. I used large buttons so I chopped them up before adding them to the mix
  8. With a metal spoon, measure out balls and place on baking tray. I squash them a little with my finger so they spread a little more evenly when baked.
  9. Bake for between 7-10 min, although judge by your oven. Mine is very hot so doesn’t take long, more towards the 7-8 min. It might take up to 13 min in a different oven so just be patient and look for a slight golden colour. Also I look for the centre of the cookie to look cooked, sometimes you can tell the if middle isn’t quite done, if so, return to oven for another 1-2 min.
  10. When done, use thin spatula to move them from baking tray to a wire rack. They will harden within 5-10 min and then you can move them onto a plate or into a container. If you like them soft you can put a lid on container but if you like them crunchy then leave them to cool completely before putting them away. The steam from being hot will soften them if there is a lid on.
