White Chocolate Cookies

Soft and cake-like cookies filled with white chocolate chips. This is a sponsored post in partnership with Bacofoil®. All views and opinions are my own.

I’m sure everyone is enjoying the return of The Great British Bake Off this year. So far I’ve loved seeing all this years bakers show-stopping creations, however something I’ve noticed is how many baking disasters there have been as a result of bakes sticking to the baking tins and trays.

Although it makes good TV viewing, it’s not something I want to experience in my kitchen. I have had in the past my fair share of this common problem with standard baking papers, until I discovered Bacofoil® Non-Stick Baking Paper.

If you were thinking all baking paper is the same, then it’s time to think again!

Bacofoil® Non-Stick Baking Paper is different to other baking papers I have used, this is because it has an innovative and unique Non-Stick textured surface, with little dimples, which means there is less surface area in contact with the bake so the food bakes evenly and just slides off making cake mess and cookie disasters with the baking papers I normally use a thing of the past.

It is also non-stick on both sides. The baking paper can be used for several batches of the same recipe being baked on the same baking tray/s. Once you’re done with your recipe, all you need to do is throw away. In the past I have used silicone baking mats, however these are usually quite expensive and I find they’re hard to clean properly.

The baking paper is multifunctional too! Not only can it be used to line cake tins and baking trays for savoury or sweet recipes, it can also be used to make tulip muffin cases, to roll out pastry or sugar-paste icing and you can even make a piping bag out of it for drizzling chocolate or icing.

To test out Bacofoil® Non-Stick Baking Paper I baked my favourite bakery-style chocolate chip cookies using delicious white chocolate and vanilla to flavour them. Cookie dough is notorious for being sticky and this cookie dough I made today is no exception, so I felt this was the perfect recipe to test out this product.

When preparing my cookies, the first thing I noticed was I didn’t need any additional preparation to the baking trays other than lining them with the baking paper – as it’s non-stick no extra butter is needed for greasing as I do with standard baking paper.

I waited with anticipation as my cookies baked, but I needn’t have worried as they came out of the oven looking perfect. After allowing my cookies to have a few minutes to cool on the baking tray, I took a spatula and lifted them off the tray with ease. Nothing had stuck, so I declared it a cookie triumph!

When I had finished baking my batch of white chocolate cookies, I pressed a few extra chocolate chips onto the top of each cookie for decoration purpose and then I simply removed the Bacofoil® Non-Stick Baking Paper from my baking trays and discarded it and returned my still clean baking trays to my baking cupboard.

My baking trays were pristine with no greasy marks as the baking paper prevented any of my cookies sticking and me having to use force to attempt to remove them the baking tray and causing a tear in the paper, which could lead to grease or oil seeping onto the baking tray/s making them dirty.

I love the fact it was hassle free and saved me another less enjoyable chore of washing up!

All in all, Bacofoil® Non-Stick Baking Paper has really impressed me and the other bakers in my household, as it’s ideal for all kinds of baking jobs and is super convenient and easy to use. I’m looking forward to using it to create many more tasty recipes!

(Makes 18-20)


150g butter (salted or unsalted), softened

80g light brown sugar

80g caster sugar

1 large free-range egg, at room temperature

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

225g plain flour

Pinch of salt (add 1/4 teaspoon if using unsalted butter)

1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

200g white chocolate chips, plus extra for decoration


  1. Preheat oven to 190°C / 170°C Fan / 375°F / Gas Mark 5. Cream the butter, brown sugar and caster sugar together until pale and creamy.
  2. Add the egg and the vanilla extract and beat until completely incorporated.
  3. Sift the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda together over the top of the mixture and gently fold in until a few specks of flour remains.
  4. Now add the chocolate chips and fold them through until evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.
  5. Cover and chill the dough for 15 minutes (this is an optional step).
  6. Divide the cookie dough into 18-20 equally sized pieces (approx. 40g each), roll into balls between your palms. Evenly spread on two to three large baking trays lined with Bacofoil® Non-Stick Baking Paper (leave a gap between each cookie to allow for spreading).
  7. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes until they’ve turned a light golden colour. When the cookies come out the oven they will appear under baked, however, as they cool they will firm up.
  8. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking trays for a few minutes. As the cookies cool you can press a few extra chocolate chips on the tops if desired, then gently transport the cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling completely. The cookies will store in an airtight container for up to one week, but they’re best eaten on the day of baking or the day after.

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Classic chocolate chip cookies. Soft, chewy and totally addictive! 


Cookies are one of my food guilty pleasures, I love going back-to-basics and I thought it was about time share my go-to cookie recipe, jam packed full of gooey chocolate chips! I cannot think of anything more delicious!

Chocolate chip cookies are the ultimate treat. I think we can all pretty much agree on that? The perfect cookie in my opinion has to be soft and with chewiness to it. I’m not a fan of big cake-y cookies, I like a slight crisp outside, but a chewy interior.

I found the recipe for these delicious cookies when I was reading my friend Lilly’s blog post. She baked these cookies from Sally’s Baking Addiction (one of my fave blogs!) – they looked so delicious, that I had to try them out for myself! These cookies are simply the BEST chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever made and eaten.


I’m so happy to finally find a great chocolate chip cookie recipe! Most the cookies I’ve made before have either been dense, flat and greasy from too much butter and way too sweet. I once even added too much chocolate – yes, you can go overboard with the chocolate! I don’t even want to admit the amount of cookie dough and cookies I’ve munched my way through to find this brilliant recipe!

I love the addition of brown sugar in cookie dough – this brings a gorgeous caramel flavour to each bite. The other “secret” ingredient is cornflour (cornstarch), this guarantees the cookies are ultra chewy and soft – you must add it for the best CCC’s! Just a few teaspoons will make a whole lot of difference.

Preparing the cookie dough is really simple, it’s an all-in-one method with no mixer required! The hardest part is definitely resisting eating spoonful after spoonful of the uncooked dough! I’m sure we’re all guilty of doing this? 😉

I did my research and most sources suggested resting and allowing the cookie dough to chill in the refrigerator overnight. Overnight chilling not only adds to the flavour, but it will produce a thicker and far chewier cookie. It’s really tempting to bake the cookie dough straight away, but it is definitely worth the wait. Try it and you will see!

With this recipe I sometimes use a mix of milk and dark chocolate chips – this balances the sweetness and richness but if you prefer you can swap the chocolate chips for chunks of chocolate. When I visited New York last March, I was lucky enough to visit Jacques Torres chocolate factory in Brooklyn and have tour around the factory by Jacques himself. It was great to watch all the chocolate being crafted ready for Easter and see behind-the-scenes. I even got the chance to try his famous chocolate chip cookies. They were simply to die-for-good, the memories of biting into that chocolatey cookie…

I hope enjoying making and eating these as much as we did! Enjoy!

(Makes 16-20 depending on size)


280g (2 and 1/4 cups) plain flour (all-purpose flour)

1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)

1 and 1/2 teaspoons cornflour

1/2 teaspoon salt

170g (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, melted (not boiling hot, cooled slightly)

135g (3/4 cup) light brown sugar

100g (1/2 cup) granulated sugar

1 large egg

1 large egg yolk

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

180g (1 cup) chocolate chips – I used a mix of milk and dark chocolate


  1. In a small mixing bowl toss together the flour, baking soda, cornflour and salt until combined.
  2. In a smaller bowl melt the butter. Add the sugars to the butter along with the vanilla and mix together until combined, this will take about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the egg and egg yolk to the mixture and beat in to combine fully.
  4. Fold the flour in, and mix until the dough starts to clump together. Finish by folding through the chocolate chips. Be careful not to over mix!
  5. Place the cookie dough in a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap and leave to chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. I made mine ahead of time and chilled the dough overnight – this is recommended.
  6. When you’re ready to bake the cookies, preheat your oven to 325°/160 Fan assisted. Take the dough out of the refrigerator and allow to come up to room temperature – this will take about 10 minutes.
  7. Portion the dough into balls – weigh for accuracy. Approx. 40g for each cookie. Now roll the cookie into an elongated shape – this will stop the cookie spreading out too much during baking.
  8. Line 2-3 large baking sheets. Spread the cookies out on the baking sheets. Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until the cookies are a light golden colour.
  9. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 2-3 minutes, then carefully transport to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.
  10. Best enjoyed with a glass of milk or sandwiched together with ice cream! Enjoy!

Recipe Notes:

  • If using salted butter, reduce the salt to 1/4 tsp.
  • You can use a mix of milk and dark chocolate chips, if preferred.
  • Chill cookie dough for at least 2 hours prior to baking, overnight will produce the best results.
