â€¢ 125g butter, softened
â€¢ 1 cup caster sugar
â€¢ 1 egg, at room temperature
â€¢ 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
â€¢ 1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
â€¢ 1/2 cup custard powder
â€¢ 80g white chocolate, roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Beat until well combined.
Sift flour and custard powder together over butter mixture. Add white chocolate and stir until mixture forms a soft dough.
Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls. Place on prepared trays, allowing room for spreading. Using a fork, press dough to flatten slightly. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Stand on trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Serve.
I loved this at it was very simple, my son Clayton helped with them & could do most of it by himself, he just needed help with measuring, and holding the beater.
They have a great texture, and I couldnt stop myself from eating a couple hot from the oven... :shocked: The are quite crunchy once cooled. I think they would be great with some chopped macadamia nuts added. And maybe drizzled with white choc.
