Cranberries, White Chocolate & Macadamia Cookie

As promised, I am now sitting in front of the computer trying to come out with a nice blog...........


Nick and I had Subway's cookies on Monday and he just can't have enough of it. So I decided to be a perfect wife and make him some cookies (okay......I have to admit some of the reason behind me baking is to make Nick fatter so I can look slimmer......*evil laugh*). Got the recipe from http://www.mycookinghut.com/ and it is the most YUMMILICIOUS cookies we ever had!





Here's the original recipe of this Cranberries, White Chocolate & Macadamia Cookie



Ingredients:



  • Butter, 125g

  • Light brown fine sugar, 100g

  • Caster sugar, 80g (I've reduced the amount of sugar from 100g to 80g)

  • Egg, 1

  • Vanilla extract, 1 tsp

  • Self raising flour, 225g

  • Dried Cranberry, 60-70g

  • White chocolate, 80g

  • Macadamia nuts (break into chunky pieces or halves), 80g

Method:



  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment.

  2. Cream the butter and sugar with an electric whisk. Then add in vanilla extract and continue to beat until combined.

  3. Add in egg. Then, fold in flour until the mixture forms a sort dough. Add in cranberry, white chocolate, and macadamia nuts. Mix well.

  4. Dot heaped spoonfuls of the mixture over the lined baking parchment, leaving plenty of space in between them as they will spread out while baking.

  5. Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until the cookies are just turning golden brown.

  6. Leave the cookies on the baking sheets to harden for a couple of minutes, then carefully lift up the baking parchment and transfer them to a wire cooling rack.

Recommendations from Wendy's Daily Times



  1. I've reduced the amount of sugar from 100g to 80g.

  2. I highly recommend to use Cadbury's Dream for the white chocolate. Do you know that Cadbury's Dream is the only real white chocolate compared to the other well-known brand.

  3. I've added some milk powder into the flour so the dough will bind even better and this gives a hint of nice milky taste to the cookies.




I hope you all will love this recipe as much as I do. And please please please do let me know the outcome if you really tried out this recipe.
