Prep: 20 minutesCook: 11 minutesTotal: 31 minutes

Buttery white chocolate chip cookies made from scratch.


  • 115 grams (1 stick or 1/2 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 90 grams (1/2 cup) brown sugar
  • 50 grams (1/4 cup) caster sugar or granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 210 grams (1 and 1/2 cups) plain flour or all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 150 grams (1 cup) white chocolate chips, plus extra for decorating
  • Sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced. Line two baking trays or cookie sheets with baking or parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the butter and sugars and beat using an electric beater on medium speed for a minute or two until smooth and creamy.
  3. Add vanilla and egg and beat until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add flour and baking soda and beat again on low speed just until a soft cookie dough forms. Add chocolate chips and stir.
  4. Scoop out cookie dough (roughly 1.5 tablespoons each) into small balls and place on baking trays, leaving room for the cookies to spread. Place in oven for 10-11 minutes or until golden brown on the edges.
  5. While the cookies are still warm, add a few extra chocolate chips on top. Leave cookies to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Sprinkle cookies with sea salt.


White chocolate chips: This recipe is extremely versatile – you can use whatever chocolate chips you fancy. Swap the white chocolate chips for milk chocolate chips, peanut butter or butterscotch chips.

Storage: Keep leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

Make ahead: You can make this cookie dough ahead of time. Simply cover and keep in the fridge, then bring the dough back to room temperature before rolling and baking. Alternatively, you can roll the cookie dough into balls and then freeze them. Let them thaw at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking as per recipe.
