Chewy White chocolate fudge cookies

Last week was spent celebrating Samantha’s birthday, culminating with a big party on Saturday for all her little friends! Knowing that the adults always fancy some food… But it’s way too early for adults to eat… I made an afternoon tea for them. I made scones (see next post) with jam and cream, cucumber sandwiches, ham sandwiches, and these delicious cookies. It went down really well, I was very pleased! Although Chris did spend most of the party making tea! This cookie recipe is a real revelation though. It’s not normally what I’d say as a positive, but these cookies are just like the ones you buy in the shops! Aka delicious! And they’re much cheaper to make than to buy I reckon. They freeze well, so in future I will probably make up a batch to freeze. These are definitely in the permanent collection! The recipe is from Lorraine pascale’s home cooking made easy book, which I’ve borrowed from the library. Apparently they last a couple of days, mine didn’t have chance!

125g butter
225g soft light brown sugar (bought this specially as figured it’s important for the fudgy texture)
1 egg
150g plain flour
50g strong white bread flour (apparently this makes them extra chewy)
1 tsp bicarb
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
200g white chocolate, snipped into chunks

Cream butter and sugar together until pale and smooth
Beat the egg in
Add the flours, bicarb, baking powder and salt and mix to a smooth, slightly sticky texture
Fold in the white chocolate
Make 12 ish balls from the mixture. Space out on a lined tray and push down a little to make a flat circle (space well as they expand during cooking)
Cook at 180 for 10-12 mins until pale golden. They will still be pretty soft. Cool on the tray for about 5 mins then very carefully move them with a fish slice
