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.
- 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.
