Chocolate chip cookies
Chocolate chip cookies
  • Makes: 20

Woman's Weekly recipe The ultimate cookie packed with crunchy nuts and oozing with melted white chocolate pieces - perfect!


  • 175g(6oz) plain flour
  • level tsp baking powder
  • level tsp salt
  • 125g (4oz) butter, softened
  • 125g (4oz) light brown sugar
  • Few drops of vanilla extract
  • 1 medium egg
  • 100g-115g packet of white chocolate drops
  • 30g (1oz) whole hazelnuts, halved

Woman's Weekly cookery editor Sue McMahon says: These cookies are also good with pecan nuts instead of the hazelnuts.


  1. Set the oven to 190C or gas mark 5.
  2. Put all the ingredients into a bowl and beat together to mix. Spoon
  3. level tablespoons of the mixture on to greased baking sheets, spacing them a little apart, to allow room for spreading while in the oven - you will need to bake in separate batches.
  4. Bake in the oven for 12-15 mins or until golden brown. Loosen each cookie lightly with a palette knife, but leave them on baking sheets to cool. Transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Storage notes: Not suitable for freezing, but will keep well for up to 4-5 days in an airtight container.Nutritional information is for the maximum number of servings

I also found the dough too stiff to work with after mixing together all the ingredients so added some skimmed milk one tablespoon at a time to ease it. It became manageable after the addition of two. They are very nice. I used pecan nuts and cut them into small pieces and in the absence of chocolate drops, used what we had in stock, a 100g bar of Green & Blacks organic white chocolate chopped up.


These are great, but I found the dough a bit dry. If you get the same problem as me, mix half a tsp of brown sugar to 250ml of milk and mix it up. Add a tsp at a time, just until the dough it moist enough. Also I forgot the vanilla extract, but the sugary milk sweetened it up. That's a good alternative if you don't like vanilla! Hope this was of help!
