TWO was a big fan of Roald Dahl books, so I decided to name my new cookie recipe in honor of his James and the Giant Peach book. While you're downloading the story to your Kindle, let's get started on our giant cookies.
2 cups Sun-Maid dried peaches
Dice these into 1/4 inch pieces and toss with:
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
Process in food processor until fruit is in small nuggets. Remove from processor and toss with:
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
Separate the pieces into little bits and set aside.
Process white chocolate in the food processor for 15 seconds and set aside:
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup (one stick) butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Cream butter and sugars together until smooth. Then add:
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Beat until combined. Add:
15.5 Ounces Peach Fruit Spread (about 2 cups) This needs to be spread rather than preserves. I used HEB brand and it was mostly 1/4 inch pieces of peach with just enough "jelly" to spread the mass around. You can add diced can peaches to peach preserves to get the right consistency if you can't find a dense fruit spread.
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Combine until smooth. Add:
dried chopped peaches
white chocolate chips
