I love baking for Christmas, and these are brilliant! They taste really Christmassy and delicious. The recipe comes from nigella christmas and I’d made it a few years back. Was inspired to make them on discovering that tesco do a value white chocolate, making them super cheap to make. Although the cranberries were expensive. Which is annoying as I’d bought some cranberries from pound land a few months ago but accidentally spilled them in the cupboard, so now I don’t have them to use and the food cupboard has a cranberry spillage behind the herbs and spices, which I can’t face sorting out until I empty the cupboard to move. The original recipe included 50g pecans but I replaced these with chocolate to cut down the cost, as you’ll see in the ingredients list below.
150g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
75g rolled oats (not instant, apparently, don’t know why…)
75g dark brown sugar
100g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla
75g dried cranberries
200g white chocolate chips (or a bar snipped into chunks)
Beat the butter and sugars with an electric whisk
Beat in the egg and vanilla
Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and oats and beat em into the rest
Fold in the cranberries and chocolate chips
Roll tablespoons of dough with your hands and put them on a baking tray (leave space as they will spread)
Bake for 15 mins at 180. They harden for 5 mins after coming out of the oven.
