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
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
350 grams white chocolate chips
1 large bowl
1 medium bowl
2 large baking trays
non stick baking paper
- Pre-heat oven to 170 degrees fan forced
- 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
- Add the white sugar and brown sugar and mix until well combined
- Add vanilla and combine
- In a separate medium sized bowl measure out flour and add salt and baking soda, mix briefly to combine
- Add flour to wet mixture a bit at a time until all combined
- Add the white chocolate chips. I used large buttons so I chopped them up before adding them to the mix
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
