Yes I know, you can never beat a good old chocolate chip cookie, but a white chocolate version is pretty good too! Well at least I think so anyway. I feel like a good White Chocolate Chip Cookie is so versatile. You can add in so many things to it to really amp up the flavour (think nuts or freeze dried fruits) or you could add use the cookies in other desserts to take it up a notch, like using them for ice cream sandwiches (maybe there’s a hint of something coming soon).
These cookies are slightly soft and slightly crispy which works really well with the subtlety of the white chocolate. However you like your cookies, these are so simple to make. They use the usual creaming butter and sugars method then add in eggs and dry ingredients, roll and bake. See pretty easy. I’ve included a variation for a macadamia version as well, because who doesn’t love a good white chocolate macadamia cookie too.
The best thing about this recipe is that they have the seal of approval from everyone who tasted them. In fact there was even mention that they could be from a very famous cookie bakery, I don’t want to give away any names here, but let’s just call them Mr Meadows ;).
