Becky from Isla B Baby has kindly let us 'borrow' her fool proof cookie recipe to share with all you MTAM readers. A very handy recipe to draw upon to help you through the home baked offering always requested for the school or toddler group coffee mornings and Christmas parties.
Becky says, "I think sometimes you come across a recipe that you just know is going to be passed around and cooked hundreds of times and this cookie recipe is certainly worth its weight. Not only is it super easy to make but you can pretty much throw anything at it and it seems to work!".
So here is Becky's recipe for Cranberry and White Chocolate Chip Cookies.
215g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
115g soft butter
125g light brown sugar
50g caster sugar
100g dried cranberries
200g white chocolate chopped into chunks
Set the oven to 190 c /375 f/ gas mark 5.
Put all the ingredients into a bowl and mix it all together until it forms a dough. By hand this takes a bit of work but in my fabulous Kitchen Aid it takes seconds!
Place little rounds of the dough onto a baking tray lined with grease proof paper (you should get about 18 cookies from the mix).
Cook in the oven for 10 mins or until they are just beginning to colour at the edges. (You still want them to be soft as they will firm up as they cool down).
Let them sit on the tray when you take them out the oven for 5 mins then transfer to a cooling tray.
And there you have it! I have tried lots of combinations of these cookies and milk chocolate and hazelnut work really well as does a bar of Chocolate Orange chopped into chunks!. Enjoy experimenting.
