White Chocolate & Smoked Almond Cookies

This is my take on a sweet and savoury cookie that most definitely ‘hits the spot’! 


  • 180g butter, melted
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 90g Chika’s smoked almonds
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup or honey
  • 90g ground almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 240g plain flour
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips



Melt the butter and mix with sugar, vanilla, smoked almonds and syrup. Mix well, and then add ground almonds and baking powder.

Mix in the beaten egg, and mix the flour in, until blended. Leave dough to sit for 10 to 15 minutes to firm up.

Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.

Add white chocolate pieces into dough and shape dough into small balls and flatten slightly.

Bake until edges just start turning golden, about 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and leave on cookie tray for 2 minutes, before transferring to wire rack to cool.
