After making the yummy chocolate chip cookies that I posted on my blog, I was on the hunt for some more delicious cookie recipes and I decided to try out these white chocolate chip cookies I came across. The title of this post is aptly named ‘the best white chocolate chip cookies’.
These cookies have a wonderful almost toffee, caramelized,milky flavor to them. It reminds me very much of the milk toffee sweets made for Christmas.
The cookie dough is not very firm like normal cookie dough, its more like a thick cake batter. I baked some straight away and some I chilled for a few hours before baking and it didn’t really make a difference.
Both methods turned out equally delicious. These do spread out quite a bit though so I recommend keeping quite a bit of space between each cookie before baking.
I cut down the recipe to half because I didn’t want to make a big batch.
Recipe source: The best white chocolate chip cookies
1/2 cup butter,room temperature
1/2 cup brown caramelized sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar that I then ground down to a powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 cup flour
200 gms of white chocolate that I chopped into chunks
- Preheat oven to 180’C
- Cream together the butter and both sugars for 2-3 minutes on medium speed.
- Add in the egg and vanilla essence and further beat on medium speed for 5 minutes.
- Add in the flour, baking soda,baking powder and salt and beat on low speed till incorporated.
- Beat in the white chocolate chunks for a minute.
- Take 2 tbsp size balls of cookie dough and place them on a baking sheet and keep quite a bit of space between each cookie.
- I then placed them in the fridge for 3-4 hours to set. I baked a couple immediately and they turned out quite well. Keeping the dough in the fridge is not necessary.
- I baked them for 15 minutes at 180’c. Please check your cookies after the 10 minute mark as everyone’s oven temperatures differ. I had to keep mine in for longer.
- Set aside to cool. These get a lovely golden color and are chewy in the inside.
