Opening the cookie jar can sometimes become a mental remorse battlefield. Because you know you should eat just one, but that lid is as treacherous as the one covering Pandora’s box…
Well, not to worry, I just came up with the perfect solution!
White Chocolate Chip Giant Cookie
- 200 g flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp NaCl
- 115 g butter
- 80 g brown sugar
- 80 g caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 130 g chopped white chocolate (or white chocolate chips)
- A bunch of smarties
Grease and line an 21 cm cake tin and preheat the oven at 130 °C fan.
Cream the softened butter by beating it with a fork (no need for electric mixer here!) and then cream in both sugars. Beat in the eggs and vanilla and, when well mixed, add the precombined flour, baking powder and salt. Stir until blended and finally fold in the chocolate.
Place the batter in the cake tin and press it down into a large circle around 1 inch smaller than the tin. Arrange some smarties by lightly pressing them down and bake for 35 minutes.
