White Chocolate Chunk Cookies and the End of an Era

College is over! After three long and exciting years I'm finally finished my Undergraduate degree...*sniff* I'll never forget the time I've spent at NUI Maynooth, they really were the best years of my life (so far) :D. So, I confess, I've been SUPER lazy the past few days about posting and our oven in the apartment is STILL crap so I haven't been able to bake ANYTHING down here... *sad face* But, last Wednesday was my little brothers 17th birthday so I high-tailed it home on Friday morning...very much in the morning (we were up at 6:30) and rushed home to bake him his favourite cookies! I would also like to thank Amy Kelly for the lovely photo at That Winsome Girl and apologise because blogger deleted my link the last time :( I'm very sorry Amy :(

White Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Makes around 12 biggish cookies

  • 245g plain flour
  • 100g butter (melted and cooled)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 180g packed light brown sugar
  • 50g white sugar
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 400g white chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 160 C
Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl
Add the melted butter to the sugars and beat until creamy
Add vanilla essence to the eggs and mix
Add eggs and vanilla mixture into the wet ingredients bowl, beating well.
Add dry ingredients to the wet and combine to form a sticky dough
Throw in chocolate chunks and mix
Roll Tbsp sized blobs of the dough into balls about the size of a ping pong ball
Place them 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with greaseproof paper and press to flatten them by about half.
Bake for 16-20 mins until golden at the edges but still quite pale in the middle
Cool for 10 mins on the sheet and then cool completely on a wire rack

According to my brother these are better than M&S and Subway white chocolate cookies. I think that's a pretty solid testimonial from a foody fusspot :P
