Tanya Burr’s White & Milk Chocolate Cookies

Tanya Burr’s White & Milk Chocolate Cookies

One of my favourite things to do in autumn and winter is baking. That’s why today I decided to bake some cookies. Any cookie would have been good, but Tanya Burr’s white and milk chocolate cookies are absolutely PERFECT! I have previously made the triple chocolate ones, but (don’t kill me for saying this) I think it is too much chocolate for me. I totally recommend you to try this ones, I’m sure you’ll thank me later.


  • 200g butter
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 325g self-raising flour
  • A dash of milk  (if necessary)
  • 200g white chocolate
  • 200g milk chocolate


Let’s go!

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Place butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat until smooth. It will be easier if the butter is at room temperature. Crack the egg and add it to the mixture. Once it is all mixed, add the flour. My advice is to do it gradually because it will be easier. Moreover, we don’t want flour all over the kitchen, do we? If the mixture is too dry, it’s time to add a dash of milk. In my case, I didn’t have to do so. Remember that this dough must not be too soft, but a bit dry and hard to knead. Break up the chocolate into chunks. Using your hands, mix it all. Try not to leave any bit of dough without chocolate. Once mixed, make pieces as big as a little handful and put them on a baking tray. Make sure to leave enough space between the pieces because if you don’t, you’ll only get one MASSIVE cookie (it happened to me last time hahaha so I know what I’m talking about). Wait for 10 minutes (or maximum 12 minutes). The edges should be slightly brown. They may not look like done but once they are cold they’ll be perfect. In fact, they should be quite gooey.


I totally recommend you to make them. You won’t regret it! It is ALWAYS a pleasure to eat a mouth-watering chocolate cookie. Also, you can eat them with a nice cup of English Breakfast tea, as I did. You’ll enjoy it.


If you want, you can check Tanya’s video here. In it you can see the whole process.

      Really?? Try to follow the steps and maybe you should leave them a bit more in the oven. Sometimes it takes longer

    Hi could we use plain flour instead ?

    • April 25, 2020 / 3:15 pm

      This recipe works best with self-raising flour, unfortunately.

    How many cookies does this recipe make? So glad you posted this as Tanya’s original video has been taken down (:

    • April 26, 2020 / 7:17 pm

      It depends on how big you make them, but if you make them as big as the original you can get about 7-8. I’m glad this is useful to many of you 😚

    how many does this make?

    • August 1, 2020 / 8:23 pm

      It depends on the size. If you go for bigger ones (Tanya used to make them like this) you should get about 8.

    The cookies end up quite flat after baking so would I be able to refrigerate the dough before baking?

    • August 4, 2020 / 11:10 am

      The dough should not be too soft before baking, otherwise they’ll end up flat. I personally haven’t tried refrigerating this dough, but there shouldnt be any problem.

    Amazing! Do you know what is the shelf life after baking? Thank you!

    • September 21, 2020 / 1:41 pm

      I would say 3-4 days if you put them in the fridge but the sponge will get a bit hard.

    I do love these cookies! Been making these for years and they are always a succes with everyone to try them. I adapted the recipe, as it is insanely sweet. Even with 200gr sugar on 200gr butter they are really sweet. I don’t dare to adapt too much further because I an afraid to adjust the chewy texture of them too much haha. And I also have less chocolate in them, about 300 gram on 200 gram butter i feel they have more than enough chocolate that way already ☺️. But either way really good! Thank you for leaving the recipe here as the video is gone. This saves my life time and time again 🤭
