Method

  1. Place the butter in the bowl and let soften in a warm place.
  2. Beat the butter vigorously with a whisk, then mix in the granulated and brown sugars. Add the whole egg, continuing to whisk.
  3. Mix together the flour and baking powder.
  4. On a cutting board, finely chop the white chocolate and the walnuts with a knife.
  5. Gradually sprinkle the flour into the first mixture, stirring gently with a wooden spoon.
  6. Finally, blend in the chopped walnuts and white chocolate without overworking the dough so that it does not toughen.
  7. Using your fingers, roll the dough into a large sausage shape, about 5 cm (2") in diameter. Put the dough into the refrigerator for one hour.
  8. When the dough is very firm, cut it into rounds 1 cm (½") thick.
  9. Cover a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
  10. Place the cookies onto the baking sheet, leaving at least 2 cm (1") space in between them.
  11. Bake in a 180° C (350° F) oven for 15 minutes. Turn the oven off and open the door to let the cookies cool.
