Fresh baked cookies are a big hit at my house, and a great way of drawing attention to the kitchen!
Now if you are like me you have a few standby recipes that you use over and over again? Trust me, this is going to be one of your family favourites to add to that list!
Use the best chocolate you can, and follow the recipe for quantity of chocolate, even thought you will think it is ‘way too much’. It really isn’t – I promise 🙂
- 125g butter, softened
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla paste
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 3/4 cup cranberries
Cream the butter and sugars together – add the egg and vanilla paste and mix.
Sift in the dry ingredients into the bowl and mix together.
Add the rolled oats, chocolate chips and cranberries and mix. Using a small ice-cream scoop, or heaped tablespoon, drop the dough onto your baking paper lined trays. 12 per tray depending on the size of your dough scoop.
Bake the cookies for 13-15 minutes on Fan Bake 180c. Let the cookies cool on the tray before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. It is usually at this point the ‘chief tester’ appears from nowhere and asks to sample the cookies. He swears they are best straight from the oven!
Go ahead, give this recipe a whirl. The aroma of freshly baking cookies will get the family scrambling from all four corners of the house, and if there are any left over, they are great in a lunch box!
Happy baking xx
