Good evening fellas!
How is the week treating you? Well, I’m having a worked up week as I’m developing recipes for a dear friends restaurant in the city. I have something to share with you all today, which actually happened yesterday. My mom has a habit of taking tea in the evening with some light easy snack or something. So when she was having her evening cup of tea yesterday, she looked out for her box of light munchies stacked in the kitchen closet, as always. When she didn’t find the cookies she was looking for, she entered my room murmering about the fact that there are no cookies in the house and tells me that we need to get them from the grocery store. And thus, I had my recipe for today in mind.
Cranberry cookies! I made them today morning and when my mother was having her evening tea today, I presented the cookies to her. She ate quite a few I must say 😀 But for me, that happiness.is unparalleled. Just felt like sharing a quick story with my small little family that is you guys!
Without much wait, Here you go:
Flour- 235 gms
Baking soda- 1/2 tsp
Butter- 150 gms (salted)
Caster sugar-120 gms
Dried Cranberries- 100 gms
- Preheat the oven to 180C for about 15 minutes.
- Using a stand mixer or a hand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and the sugar until its light and fluffy and the color changes.
- In another bowl, add the flour and mix the baking soda to it.
- Add the flour mixture to the butter batter and blend it well. You will see that the dry mixture starts to come together and form a nice dough.
- At this point, turn the mixer speed to the lowest and add the cranberries to it. You can also chose to fold in the cranberries using a spatula or even your hand.
- Cookie dough is ready. Refrigerate the dough for about 5-10 minutes to chill.
- After the dough is chilled enough, make small round shaped balls and place them on the baking tray and press a little.
- Sprinkle some caster sugar on the dough balls before they enter the oven. You can do this after the baking as well.
- Bake the cookie dough for about 15 minutes at 180C or until the cookies bake a nice brown.
- Enjoy with your favorite cup of tea or coffee!
- You can also use dried blueberries or choco-chip with this recipe. Works equally well.
- If in case you are using frozen berries, heat them in the oven for about 5 minutes and they are good to use.
- A good way to find out if the cookies are done is the color and texture of the cookie, a good brown and a hard center tells that the cookie is done.
This recipe is another eggless version for the cookies as requested by one of the readers. Absolutely crispy and light textured cookies that would vanish from the table in minutes.
