I’m playing catch up today, technically I’m meant to be locked in my room (per my request to hubby because I don’t know how to rest). Instead I’m brain storming ideas for Christmas, thinking about grandparents day coming up at work, trying to get ahead on blog stuff and most importantly, resting a ridiculously painful back which life simply doesn’t allow time to rest. Instead I’m still technically resting at the kitchen table babbling to husband while watching him price things for our up coming garage sale and still getting work done. Compromise.
With everything at this time of year its hard not to have Christmas on my mind, but I’m really not ready for it. My husband and I have started our endless debate of “I hate the Christmas promotion starting at the start of November” (him) “They are going to do it no matter how many people whinge so there is no point whinging in the first place” (me). Unfortunately there is no denying its getting close, but I’m choosing to ease into it slowly with something that is slightly Christmassy, but is still perfectly acceptable year round. Honestly I’m not even sure why these are on so many perfect cookie Christmas lists. So really its just my way of pretending I’m getting in the Christmas spirit.
I seriously love the white chocolate and cranberry combination (and just decided that white chocolate and cranberry blondies sound phenomenal). There is something about the slight sourness from a cranberries rounded out by the melty sweetness of white chocolate all wrapped up in a warm cookie straight from the oven. They of course taste amazing when they have cooled and the next day as well.
Using multi-blade. Add butter and eggs and blend speed 6 for 1 minute.
Add brown sugar, white sugar and vanilla extract and blend speed 4 for 1 minute.
Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix speed 3 until combined.
Add white chocolate and cranberries and mix speed 2 until combined.
Shape in to tablespoon balls and flatten VERY slightly and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 10 to 12 minutes. They will still be soft but slightly browned around the edges. Let cookies cool on tray until set enough to move to a cooling rack
