Lazy Sunday afternoons always offer a small window in my otherwise hectic week for one of my favourite pastimes, a spot of baking. I found these custard and white chocolate cookies whilst drooling over the BBC Good Food website and decided that they would be the perfect treat for my work friends this week, after Rob and I gave them the taste-test of course! And here’s how you make them…
140g soft butter
175g caster sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
225g self raising flour
85g custard powder
85g white chocolate, chopped into small chunks
Makes 25 modest cookies, or 15 man-sized cookies!
In a bowl or a food processor, combine the butter and sugar until soft and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix again. Sift together the flour and custard powder, add to the mixture and pulse until a ball of dough is formed. Add in the chunks of chocolate and whizz one more time before scraping the dough out of the mixer. Take small sections of the dough, roll them into a ball and place onto a baking tray lined with baking parchment leaving a good distance between each cookie for them to spread. Bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden. Pour yourself a glass of milk and enjoy!
Warning: You won’t be able to just have one!
