Merry Christmas! - Cranberry and White Chocolate Cookies

12/23/2006 12:54:00 AM

I made these cookies on Thursday the 21st of December, as a last minute Christmas gift for some friends who I only just realised were giving me Christmas gifts. They come from the Christmas chapter in Nigella's Feast, and as such, were totally appropriate. The cookie batter contains rolled oats, dried cranberries, pecans and white chocolate. It looks very, very festive.

You roll out tablespoonfuls of the dough out, and bake it for 15 minutes. Easy. I increased the quantities of the recipe by 1.5, which resulted in 42 cookies - enough to go between my friend Mark, my friend Sandra, and my family.

Check out the delightfully jewel-bright cranberry-studded interior! Very pretty. The bicsuits were lovely and crunchy, but too sweet (even with the sour cranberries inside). I'd love to make these again, but with much less sugar. I would have also liked much, much more chunky bits. I'd easily double the cranberries and the chocolate, and perhaps triple the nuts. You see, after trying out The Rock's Favourite Chocolate Chip Cookies, I have realised that only totally garish cookies, chock-full of chunky American-style goodness will satisfy me. But even so, these were still very good, and my family will happily finish them off over the next few days.

Packed and ready to go.
