Expert Tips

Six ounces of white chocolate baking bar may be used in place of the white chocolate chunks; coarsely chop the bar before adding it to the dough.

To make these cookies into uniform shapes, use a small round spring-loaded scoop. These scoops resemble ice cream scoops and are available in many sizes; look for them in cookware stores. A #70 scoop or one with a diameter of 1 1/2-inches measure one tablespoon of dough.
