Right, I warn you up front, no not make these cookies, then eat them all and then come complaining to me! I will say, I told you so…. so I will say it right here and now… these are delicious, don’t make them as you will live to regret it when your jeans won’t do up!
Hence I’ve named them pudgy, as that is how I feel now after chopping through 5 of them today alone… fat… fat cookies is what I should call them!!
Ok, enough banter as I hate those websites that prattle on for 6 pages before you even get to the recipe ( I know, they monetise their site, so the more you have to scroll the more adverts you have to see and the more money they make…. as you can clearly tell, I don’t do that and I get down to business quickly) so if I chat a little bit, suck it up and be kind by tolerating me! Plus… it’s a free recipe so do me a favour and comment on it or share it with someone :D
250 grams ion room temp unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups of light brown sugar
1/2 cup of caster sugar
2 large room temp eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla bean extract
4 cups of plain flour
1 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1 cup of white choc chips
1 cup of dried cranberries
Line a couple of baking trays with baking paper or silicone baking mats
In a mixing bowl add in sugars, butter and vanilla and either use a hand mixer or turn on your stand mixer with the whisk attachment and cream until light, fluffy and pale.
Add in an egg at a time, until well combined and then add the second egg
Add in the dry ingredients, being the flours, baking powders and salt until combined,
If your equipment struggles, use a wooden spoon or spatula to continue mixing when you add in the berries and the chocolate.
It’s really important that you don’t compact the dough down, keep it soft and light.
Be gentle and divide the dough up, it should make approx 12 cookies, they are huge! I used a large icecream scoop to scoop a big heap out and drop onto the baking tray - don’t try and form a ball or push it down, let it heap and leave it.
Place the trays into the fridge for 30 to 45 mins to chill.
Turn on your oven to 175 degrees celcius to preheat.
Bake for 16 to 18 minutes.
Leave them on the trays to cool.
Devour… I ate them hot…. like burn your mouth hot and they are soooooooo good!!!
Let me know if you have any questions below.
