Method

White Chocolate Chip Cookies is a community recipe submitted by HannaBerlin and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • In a bowl over a pan of simmering water melt the butter, brown sugar and syrup. In another bowl mix the flour, salt, vanilla and baking powder. Beat the egg into the butter mixture, followed by the flour mix. Cool in the fridge for an hour while the oven preheats to 175°C. Line two baking sheets with baking parchment.
  • Into the cooled dough mix the chocolate chips. With gloved hands shape walnut-sized balls out of the dough, place them on the baking sheets and flatten them slightly. Be careful to leave space between them, about an inch or 3 cm should be enough.
  • Bake for 12-15 min. They should look done but still be soft. Don't place the baking sheet too high in the oven, or the white chocolate might catch. A bit of caramelization is expected and desired but burned chocolate isn't a nice thing.
  • After taking the cookies out of the oven, leave them on the baking sheet for 2 min, then transfer to a cooling rack.

    • Just made these today and they did not turn out at all how I expected them too, they were more like chewy cakes rather than cookies and I was quite disappointed with the results followed the instructions precisely, would recommend to use a different recipe

    • Sophie, did you add extra flour? I found that the mixture is more moist that some cookie recipes but I just went with it and they came out well.

    • I made these cookies last night and i must have gone wrong somewhere as they turned out cake like, they didn't go flat. They tasted gorgeous but just didn't look like cookies. If anyone has any advise as to why this might have happened i would be grateful if you could let me know.
