Vanilla and White Chocolate Cookies





Introduction: Vanilla and White Chocolate Cookies

These are delicious cookies, buttery, almost but not quite like shortbread, with a lovely hint of vanilla. Oh and the white chocolate caramelizes lusciously.

Makes about 25 cookies

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 125 g butter
  • 50 g sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla paste
  • 175 g flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 50 g white chocolate

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcious

Step 2:

Chop the chocolate into small pieces. Beat the butter, sugar and cream together thoroughly. Add the vanilla paste and mix again.

Step 3:

Dump the flour and baking powder as well as the chopped chocolate into the bowl with the butter/sugar/cream, and mix until it forms a dough.

Step 4: Roll Into Balls

Prepare the trays with baking paper. Roll the dough into about 25 balls.

Step 5: Squash 'EM!

Space the balls about 3 cm apart on the tray, and then using a fork, squash them down twice, creating a criss-cross pattern on the top of each cookie.

Bake in a 180 degree Celsius oven for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden.

Step 6: Delicious Cookies Done

Let the cookies cool on a cooling rack, then enjoy!

    I didn't know vanilla paste was a thing. Why that and not the more familiar vanilla essence?

    Hi blueboy4, vanilla paste is just something we used for this recipe as it was in the pantry :) vanilla essence would be a perfectly acceptable substitution.

    Sounds delicious. I've only ever seen the criss-cross pattern on peanut butter cookies.

    First time I will bake something I will try your recipe
