Lemon and White Chocolate Cookies

21 Oct

I made these for school class party and the seem to be a favourite with anyone who tries them….They are my new favourite!

I am a big fan of Macadamia and White Chocolate cookies, however, most schools don’t allow nuts these days.  I had the ingredients in the pantry, but I was just not going to not use the Nuts.  I also had a large bowl of Lemons which I pinched off my cousins tree and I stumbled across a similar recipe to this one while Googleing for inspiration. I had not tried this combination before and it is so good.  So good.

110g Butter, softened
1/2 Cup Caster Sugar
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
pinch of salt
zest of two Lemons (more of less according to your taste)
1 Large Egg, beaten
1 and 1/4 cups Plain Flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
200g White Chocolate, cut into chunks

Preheat oven to 190C (fan-forced 170C) and prepare your baking tray with baking paper or whatever non-stick trick you use.

Cream butter, caster sugar, soft brown sugar, Lemon Zest and salt together until fluffy.  Taste the batter to check if you have enough Lemon (start small and add more…You Can Always Add, But You Can’t Take Away) and then mix in the beaten egg.

Stir the flour and bicarbonate of soda into the mix. Mix together and just as it starts to all combine add the White Chocolate.  Try not to eat to much before you put it in the bowl 😛

Put on the baking tray using a teaspoon, make sure you leave plenty of room between each one as they will spread out quite a bit.

Cook for about 8 – 10 minutes.  Until just golden around the edges. Yum Yum Yum
