  • Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Using a double boiler or microwave melt the white chocolate wafers.
  • Once the chocolate has melted drizzle it on top of the cookies.

Notes

Measuring flour: Many people think it's okay to scoop the flour out of the bag with a measuring cup. The problem with this is that you could end up with twice as much as you need.
Always use a spoon to scoop the flour right into the measuring cup, and don't pack it in. Tap the side of the cup to fill in any pockets of air.
Once you’ve spooned the flour into the measuring cup, use the back of a knife to level it off.
Melting chocolate: If you've never melted chocolate in the microwave, simply put it in a microwave safe bowl and place in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir well.
Move back into the microwave for another minute. Stir again. Repeat this process until all of the wafers have melted completely.
Don't try to make the process faster by microwaving for longer periods or you may end up with a mess you can't use.
