Hi, there. How are you today? I woke up and felt the need to bake – it’s been too long. As soon as I checked my blog posts I realised it’s been ages since I have posted a cookie recipe. So, today I bring you my Cranberry Oat Cookies.
Although I haven’t posted a new recipe since my last Cookie post, that doesn’t mean I have abstained from baking cookies. Rather it means I’ve baked Cookies I’ve already posted. Confused yet? So I baked a batch of Cranberry Oat Cookies. I think these may be my favourite Cookies today!
Since I really fancied Cranberries, Oats and Almonds I made these new cookies, throwing in all the ingredients hoping they would turn out ok. Oooh they are so much more than ok they are scrumptious.
Recipe : Makes 18-20 Cranberry Oat Cookies
150g/5oz Caster Sugar
225g/8oz Unsalted Butter – room temperature
1 Large Egg Yolk
1tsp Vanilla Extract – I use Nielsen-Massey
1/2tsp Almond Extract
1/4tsp Sea Salt – I use Maldon
175g/6oz Plain White Flour
175g/6oz Oats – not quick cook
100g/4oz Dried Cranberries
50g/2oz Flaked Almonds
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan oven, has mark 4, 350F
Making And Shaping The Cookies:
- First of all, unless using non stick, line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.
- Into a large bowl add the butter, sugar and salt. Beat together until pale and fluffy – I used an electric whisk, a stand mixer with the paddle attachment fixed is fine.
- Add the egg yolk and vanilla/almond extracts and thoroughly mix in.
- Next add the flour, oats, cranberries and flaked almonds. Mix until just combined.
- Take about a heaped tablespoon of the Cookie dough and roll into a ball using your hands.
- Place the Cranberry Oat Cookie dough balls onto the baking tray.
- Using your fingers gently press down to lightly flatten them.
Baking The Cookies
- Place the cookies into the middle and lower part of the oven.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.
- As soon as the cookies are golden, remove from oven and allow to fully cool on the baking sheets. This allows the Cranberry Oat Cookies to firm up.
Store the cold cookies in an airtight container and eat within a week.
