That’s The Way The Cookie Crumbles!

A while ago I treated myself to the Hummingbird Bakery: Cake Days app on the iPhone. As soon as I spotted the recipe for white chocolate & cranberry cookies I knew I was going to make them. I’ve practically been a white chocolate addict since I was a child! Although, knowing that this flavour cookie isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, I thought why not split the batch into two flavours?

My mind was made up. It was going to be White chocolate & cranberry cookies and Chocolate chip & fudge cookies. Oh hells yeah!

Here is what you will need to make approx 18 cookies.

  • 135g Butter (Room Temp!)
  • 80g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 80g Light Brown Soft Sugar
  • 1 Egg (Room Temp!)
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 190g Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Bicarbonated Soda

For the White Chocolate & Cranberry Cookies (1/2 Batch)

  • 50g Dried, Sweetened Cranberries
  • 50g White Chocolate, chopped into chunks

(Double if making a full batch)

For the Chocolate Chip & Fudge Cookies (1/2 Batch)

  • 50g Fudge Pieces
  • 50g Milk Chocolate, chopped into chunks

(Double if making a full batch)

Preheat the oven to 190°C/Fan 170°C and line a large baking sheet with baking paper.

Using an electric hand mixer, cream together the butter & both the sugars until light and fluffy. (About 3 minutes.)

Beat the egg in a small bowl/glass then add to the mixture along with the vanilla extract.

Sift together the flour, salt, cinnamon & bicarbonated soda and add to the wet mixture in 3-4 batches. Mix thoroughly until all of it is incorporated and you are left with a dough.

If making both types of cookies, split the mixture between two bowls. Add the white chocolate chunks & cranberries to one bowl and the milk chocolate chunks  fudge pieces to the other bowl. Mix well.

If you are only making one flavour of cookie, just keep it all in one bowl and add the relevant ingredients.

Using a tablespoon to help keep the sizes the same, roll tablespoonfuls of the mixtures into balls and place evenly on the prepared baking sheet. Leave enough space between each cookie as they will spread whilst cooking. You will need to cook them in 2 batches or on two baking sheets.

Place in the oven for about 12 minutes until golden. Turn halfway to ensure an even bake.

Allow to cool on the tray for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Enjoy one (or four!) with a nice hot cup of tea.

The dough mix is really lovely. I think it even tops my House Warming Cookies recipe! Beautifully chewy in the middle but crunchy on the edge. Just lovely!

I think if you took the cinnamon out of the mix you could pretty much add any flavour you wanted to it. Maybe some milk chocolate orange chunks or chocolate chips & marshmallows. Mmmmm.

Enough of my drooling over cookie ideas!

Until next time my lovelies.
