White chocolate & orange cookies

White chocolate & orange cookies
  • Meal Type


There are many variations on this classic recipe, but this is mine. I love the hint of orange and crunch of the white chocolate chunks. It makes plenty for kids’ lunchboxes and is a lovely treat for teachers.

Makes 32

  • 220g butter, softened
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • ¼ cup condensed milk
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 2¼ cups self-raising flour
  • ¾ cup roughly chopped white chocolate or white chocolate melts

1 Preheat oven to 175°C. Line 2 trays with baking paper.

2 Using an electric beater, cream the butter and sugar for 3-4 minutes until fluffy and pale. Add condensed milk, orange zest and vanilla paste and beat well. Remove the beater and stir in flour and chocolate.

3 Roll into walnut-sized balls and place on the lined trays, leaving room for spreading.

4 Flatten slightly with a fork and bake 10-14 minutes until golden. For even cooking shapes, I find it’s good to weigh the mixture then roll into 28g balls.
