I reached 20.000 Followers at the food community of SortedFood today. To celebrate that I wanted to bake something. Making a cake was not an option, short after the vacation I did not have time for it. But cookies are always good and my coworkers will love them.
It is an American recipe and contains lovely dried cranberries. I am usually not a huge fan of white chocolate, but the combination with the tarte berries balances the sweetness.
Baking American recipes often, I know I have to reduce the sugar to suit our tastebuds.
recipe for 18 cookies:
185 g flour
100 g light salted butter
130 g light brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
100 g chopped white chocolate
100 g soft dried cranberries
some white chocolate curls
Mix soft butter with sugar and the egg to a fluffy paste.
Mix flour and baking powder and add to the paste.
Add the vanilla extract.
If you have a solid package of white chocolate. Keep it close and use the back of a big knife and bash on the slab of chocolate. Open the package and chop the rest into small pieces.
Add to the mix with the cranberries.
Use baking paper on two baking sheets and set a tbsp of dough wide apart, they will spread. Just 9 cookies per baking sheet.
Bake at 170 C for 12 minutes. They should come soft out of the oven and will firm up. Stick a piece of chocolate curl into each warm cookie.
