Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups butter softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 oz white chocolate cut in chunks
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts toasted
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar

Method

Line rimless baking sheets with parchment paper or grease; set aside.

In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Beat in orange rind and vanilla.

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt ; stir into butter mixture in 3 additions. Stir in white chocolate and nuts.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls (15 mL), 2 inches (5 cm) apart, onto prepared sheets. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 325°F (160°C) oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, until firm and golden on bottom, about 15 minutes. Let cool on pans on rack for 5 minutes. Remove from sheets; let cool on racks.

Sift icing sugar over cookies. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight containers and store for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.)
