Hint of Christmas Cookies

These scrummy cookies are nice and easy to make, I hardly had chance to take any photo’s of these before they disappeared! You can vary the end result by leaving some as a ball of dough as some people like a softer cookie rather then a crunch.  With cranberries and cinnamon it must be nearly Christmas.

110g soft butter
100g caster sugar
50g demerara sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
150g self raising flour
30g oats
75g dried cranberries
Makes 20-24 cookies
Preheat the oven 180°C 160°C Fan GM4

Grease or line a few baking trays.

Place balls of dough weighing about 25g on the prepared baking trays, for thinner crisper cookies flatten with your palm. For a denser, more cakey texture leave as a mound. Allow room for spreading.

Bake until golden, about 10 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the baking tray and then when firmed slightly move to a cooling rack.

Store in an airtight container. Enjoy with a cuppa ♥
