White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies (that taste like they're from Millie's!!)

Sunday, 8 February 2015

I absolutely love baking and I usually end up doing it on a Sunday afternoon. The end result can be hit or miss but this time it was definitely a hit!!

I didn't really know what to make, but wandered to Tesco for some inspiration..threw some white chocolate and cranberries into my basket (a classic combo) and skipped back home, in the hope I could actually find a recipe!

Bliss is what happened....


I adapted this recipe to make them and they genuinely do taste like they could be from Millie's!


Slightly cripsy on the outside and oh so moist in the middle....

(I hate the word moist too, but when it comes to cookies, it's necessary!)

The cranberries burst with sweetness in your mouth and if you eat them whilst they're warm, the white chocolate will be all melted and delicious..


I recommend eating them after they've slightly cooled but are still warm, along with a cold glass of milk!

To have a go yourself, you will need:

125g butter (leave it out the fridge so it softens)
225g of caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
1tsp vanilla extract
225g self raising flower
A pinch of salt
150g white chocolate
135g dried cranberries

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees

2. Cream the butter and sugar together and then add the beaten egg and vanilla extract

3. Sift in the flour (I actually don't have a sieve - student life! - but it worked fine without) and throw in that pinch of salt

4. Roughly chop up your white chocolate into chunks of whatever size you want and add that, along with your cranberries

5. Knead the mixture into a dough. If it's not sticking together then add a splash of milk

6. Roll the dough into balls, just slightly bigger than a walnut and place on a greased baking tray

7. Pop in the oven for about 10-12 minutes - when they come out they should still be soft, but will harden as they cool, yet remain soft in the centre

Enjoy! x

  5. I always remember absolutely loving the mouth watering smell of freshly baked cookies, making it so impossible to walk past Millie's cookies without being tempted into buying something! You pretty much just described the perfect cookie so im definitely going to have to give this a try, and definitely share some of them with my house mates *cough*
