The Recipe


113g butter softened

57g cream cheese softened

170g light brown sugar

55g granulated sugar

1 large egg

2 teaspoons vanilla essence

1 tablespoon golden syrup

300g Flour

1 pkt instant vanilla pudding mix

1 teaspoon bicarb soda

Pinch salt

280g white choc chips


Preheat oven to 180c. Beat butter, cream cheese, sugars, egg, vanilla and golden syrup with an electric mixer until creamed and well combined, medium speed about 4 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl and add flour, pudding mix, bicarb soda, salt and beat on low speed until just combined, about 1 minute.

Add the choc chips and stir until mixed through. Use a ¼ cup measure or your hands to form approximately 14 balls of dough.  Flatten slightly.  Redistribute a few choc chips from in the dough and place on top if desired. Place cookies on lined cookie tray, allowing room for spreading.

Cook for about 15 mins until edges are set.  Cookies may still be soft in the middle – they will firm on standing. Allow cookies to cool on tray for 10 mins before transferring to a wire rack.

Variation: add macadamias for white choc macadamia cookies, or substitute milk choc chips for white.
