Cookies are quite personal really. Some people like a chewy cookie, others need it crumbly and more biscuit like. I like my cookies fat, a little cakey, and with a couple of flavours going on.
Cookies are so versatile. Any mood you are in, you can just switch up the flavours accordingly. In my case, it’s more like whatever I have left in the cupboard, I can switch up the flavours according to that… But you get what I mean…
Today I had white chocolate to play with, and because the cookies are quite a sweet mix anyway, I thought I would pair it with some dried cranberries for a bit of sharpness.
These white chocolate and cranberry cookies took no more than 15mins from beginning to end/eat for me. It’s just a quick mix of basic ingredients of your go-to cookie dough and adding in 150g chopped white chocolate and 25g dried cranberries, zapping them in the oven, and the tucking in.
They disappear as quickly as they take to make. Little bits of bite-size goodness ready to share.
If you don’t have a go to cookie dough recipe, here’s mine:
100g golden caster sugar
125g butter, softened
1 medium egg
1 tsp vanilla paste (or 2 tsp vanilla extract)
230g self raising flour
150g chopped white chocolate
25g dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Cream the sugar and butter.
Add the egg and vanilla and mix again.
Add the salt and flour and mix until just combined.
Fold in the chocolate pieces and cranberries.
Shape into balls, place on a lined baking sheet and squish each ball a little so they flatten.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden. They will be a little soft when you take them out but will harden as they cool.
