Midweek Treats: Cranberry, Walnut & White Chocolate Cookies

For the first time in a long time I have a Saturday off (hurrah!), so this months instalment of Midweek Treats comes to you on a weekend! I must say I have certainly made the most of my unexpected day off as I've been doing all the things I love to do: thrifting, baking, sewing and blogging.

Today I made some crunchy cranberry, walnut and white chocolate cookies, but the best thing about this recipe is that you can substitute any of the flavours to suit your taste. You could try anything from raisins, chopped apricots, dark chocolate, almonds, toffee pieces or hazelnuts - anything goes!


110g unsalted butter
50g caster sugar
110g soft brown sugar
170g white chocolate/died cranberries/walnuts
150g plain flour
1 large egg (beaten) 
2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 180˚c and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper
  • Mix together the unsalted butter, caster sugar and brown sugar
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract
  • Stir in the flour, a bit at a time, until the mixture forms a dough
  • Add in white chocolate, cranberries and walnut pieces (or your choice of flavours). Make sure they are evenly distributed throughout the dough
  • Mold small balls of the mixture into circles and place on the baking tray, leaving a large gap between each cookie so they don't stick together while in the oven
  • Bake for 12 minutes
*Recipe make 12 medium-sized cookies*

Now, put that kettle on and serve with a mug of English Breakfast Tea!
