American Style White Chocolate Chunk Cookie Recipe

Ever since we returned from Canada I have been craving cookies, they are just so much better in North America, big and chewy as opposed to the small biscuit like ones you get here – my American friend had pointed out to me “How do they call these American Style?”. So I decided that the only way to satisfy my craving was to make them myself but then I had to decide what flavour to make. The decision making did not last long before I decide on white chocolate and here is my recipe for American Style White Chocolate Chunk Cookies:


  • 250g of Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1/2 tsp of Salt
  • 170g of Butter
  • 200g of Brown Sugar
  • 100g of Caster Sugar
  • 1 tbsp of Vanillan Extract
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 325g of White Chocolate Chunks

  1. Preheat the oven to 170C
  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper
  3. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt together and set aside
  4. In a bowl cream together the butter, brown sugar and caster sugar
  5. When smooth beat in the vanilla extract, egg and egg yolk until light and creamy
  6. Mix if the flour mixture gradually and blend
  7. Stir in the white chocolate chunks
  8. Spoon dough onto the baking tray – around 2 large tablespoons for a large cookie – do not flatten
  9. Make sure that each cookie is 8cm apart to allow for baking
  10. Bake for around 13-15 minutes
  11. Once cooked take out of the oven and leave on baking tray to cool
  12. After 5 minutes cooling on the tray transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling before eating

Serving Suggestions

Can anything beat cookies and milk?

These were so so so good and completely satisfied my craving. This mix makes around 10 large cookies or up to 16 smaller ones I imagine so it is always a good recipe to have on hand if friends come over or if you want to make cookies to last all week (they might be too yummy for this though). Although I have to warn you when mixing by hand it is hard work and will certainly give your batwings an exercise session, although this could be seen as burning calories so you can have one more of these American Style White Chocolate Chunk Cookies!
