Delicious, super sweet white chocolate chunk cookies with a big hit of vanilla.
I always favour thinner cookies over thicker – crisper at the edges and (providing you watch the cooking time) gloriously gooey in the centre!
White Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Makes 20-24 Cookies
170g Unsalted Butter (Room Temperature), 130g Plain Flour, 1/2tsp Salt, 3/4tsp Baking Powder, 1 Large Egg, 160g Light Brown Sugar, 30g Caster Sugar, 1/2 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste, 125g White Chocolate (Chopped)
1) Pre heat the oven to 200c and line a baking tray with baking paper.
2) Combine the flour, salt and baking powder in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the butter and two sugars together with a mixer on medium speed until well combined (2 minutes). Add the egg and vanilla to the mixture and beat on medium speed until fluffy (2 minutes). Add the flour and fold to combine. Add the chocolate chunks and fold lightly to combine.
3) Spoon heaped teaspoonfuls of the dough on to the baking parchment, leaving a good 2″ gap around each spoonful. Bake in the oven for 6 minutes or until brown round the edges. When ready, remove from the oven and allow to cool a little before transferring to a wire rack to cool fully. Continue to cook the mixture in batches until exhausted.
4) Store the cookies in an airtight container.
