Woman's Weekly recipe This crispy and crunchy cookie is sweetened with sugar, white chocolate and honey. A great biscuit to go with your tea any time of the day

  • 2 med eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 275g (9oz) self-raising flour
  • 200g bar white chocolate, chopped

  • 2 baking trays, lined with baking parchment
