Strawberry & White Chocolate Cookies

Since I am obsessed with White chocolate and my Giant Milkybar Cookie is one of my most popular recipes, I thought a White chocolate cookie recipe was long overdue. This time I’ve chosen White chocolate and strawberry as I think the flavours go so well together.

It’s taken a few attempts to get these cookies right. Baking with fruit can be quite tricky because it adds excess moisture which can really affect the bake. I tried using fresh and frozen fruit with these cookies but it just didn’t work as the excess moisture meant that they spread too much and had a weird texture.

Then, I remembered I had a big bag of freeze-dried strawberries in the cupboard (that I had bought ages ago for a specific recipe that I STILL haven’t got round to making), so decided to use those – they worked perfectly! You can buy them from Lakeland and some supermarkets also sell them.

As with most bakes, the secret to these cookies is to make sure you don’t over-bake them! It can be hard to give a specific time as all ovens are different, but these cookies are ready as soon as they start to turn a slight golden colour. If you over-bake by even a minute or two, they will be dry and you won’t get that nice chewy middle that we all know and love.

The great thing about these cookies is that you can freeze the dough into individual portions and cook from frozen. So whenever you get a cookie craving, you can just pop one (or two!) into the oven. Just add an extra 3-5 minutes onto the baking time if cooking from frozen.
