  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2¼ cups flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 100g white chocolate, roughly chopped

Method

  2. Using an electric beater cream the butter, brown sugar and vanilla extract until light and fluffy, then beat in the egg.*
  3. Sift in the flour and baking powder with the chopped white and dark chocolate.
  4. Roll into balls and place on baking trays, flattening a little with your hand. Leave room between each one to spread.
  5. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until golden. Remove from the oven and stand for 5 minutes on the trays before transferring the cookies to a wire rack to cool. When cold, store in an airtight container.

Tips

  • *If you don’t have an electric beater, this can be done by hand using a wooden spoon.
  • For gooey chocolate and to enjoy them warm, microwave the cookies for approximately 10 seconds.

Swap it out

  • If wished replace the white chocolate with milk chocolate or just use 200g of dark chocolate.

Switch it up

  • Add ½ cup chopped toasted macadamia nuts or hazelnuts with the chocolate.
