I’m back after some wonderful days off and would like to thank you all for the lovely comments and emails – you are just too sweet!
I had loads of fun on my vacation, but must admit I missed blogging... Nothing better than cookies to get back to the kitchen. These are delicious - one of Nic’s great recipes.
White chocolate cherry cookies
1 ½ cups (210g) all purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup (113g) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup (200g) sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup (116g) white chocolate chips or chunks
2/3 cup (97g) dried cherries (coarsely chopped, if cherries are very large)
Preheat oven to 180ºC/350ºF; line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour mixture, followed by the white chocolate chips and dried cherries.
Roll tablespoonfuls of dough into 2.5cm (1in) balls* and place onto prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until cookies are just beginning to turn a light golden color around the edges. Cool for about 5 minutes on the baking sheet until cookies are completely set, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
Store in an airtight container.
Makes about 2 dozen – I used 1 leveled tablespoon of dough per cookie and got 34
