Cranberry and White Chocolate Cookies
One of my family friends called Helen made these cookies once or twice for a party, and i just thought they were delicious- so much so that i sneaked one home in a napkin! Anyway, i eventually got hold of her recipe, and made them. So Helen, this ones for you!!!

150g unsalted butter
165g soft brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
2tsp vanilla extract
125g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
200g rolled oats
140g white chocolate
85g dried cranberries

  • preheat the oven to 180C and line three baking trays
  • cream the butter and sugar together until pale and creamy
  • add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth
  • sift the flour, baking powder and salt together in a different bowl. add the oats, chocolate and cranberries and stir together. add to the creamed mixture and stir together well.
  • roll small tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place on baking trays. flatten balls with a floured fork.
  • bake for 12-15 minutes until pale golden. Leave to cool on trays for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
