Cranberry and White Chocolate Chip Cookies

December 26, 2013

Recently I was sent a challenge by Wilko, and as I love challenges I had to get involved. They sent me a recipe for gooey gourmet cookies which I had to customize by adding my own fillings to make a unique flavour. They sent me some ideas for fillings to get me started but I had a look though my cupboards and decided I would try a mixture of dried cranberries and white chocolate chips. I thought this sounded like a lovely idea for a filling and in keeping with the season.

To add a unique stamp to my cookies Wilko also send me a Wilko Vintage Cookie Press. The idea is that you press these into the biscuits and it puts a message onto the cookie. There are three templates, Eat Me, Home Made and Baked With Love. I was looking forward to trying them and writing the recipe into the recipe notebook that came along with them.Recipe book and cookie pressI have to say the Cranberry and White Chocolate Chip cookies were delicious and I will be making them again. If you want to give them a try this is the recipe:

    Om nom, those look so yummy – I’ve never tried making cookies without golden syrup, does it thicken up easily or take a really long time to mix?

  2. Ooh I made cranberry and white choc cookies recently too but mine were chunky and didn’t use condensed milk. These look all lovely and thin & gooey like Millie’s Cookies. I want them! Thanks so much for linking up with #recipeoftheweek. I’ve Pinned and am about to tweet this recipe and there’s a new linky live now – hope you join in 🙂
