I'm not really a biscuit kind of person. By that, I mean your unlikely to see me reaching for a bourbon or custard creme. However, I do love a good white chocolate cookie. They need to be crisp around the outside and nice and chewy in the middle. I added glacier cherries to this classic chocolate chip recipe for an extra sweet texture.
150g Salted Butter Softened to room temperature
2 tsp vanilla extract
80g Granulated Sugar
80g Light Brown muscovado sugar
1 Large egg
220g Plain Flour
Pinch of Salt
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
200g White Chocolate chopped into chunks
Handful of Glacier cherries chopped in half
Pre-heat oven to 190 degrees and line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper. Cream the butter and sugars together in a bowl until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract.
Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt into the bowl and mix well. Add the chocolate chips and cherries. Mix until the dough is consistent.
Spoon into small rounds onto the baking sheet. They will expand when baked so take care not to put them too close together. Bake for around 8 - 10 minutes until they are golden brown. Leave them to cool on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring them over to a wire cooling rack.
Be warned. These are addictive! If anyone baked them don't forget to send me pictures so I can check it out!
