After shopping for the Christmas cake ingredients this morning, I got home and had a desire to bake something Christmassy. The biscuit tin was empty and calling out for cookies so I turned to Nigella!
I have made a couple of changes to her cookie recipe as I had no pecan nuts and didn't want to use the dark brown sugar so I opted for just caster sugar for a lighter biscuit.

150g plain flour
1/2tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
75g rolled oats
125g soft butter
175g caster sugar
1 egg
1tsp vanilla extract
100g dried cranberries
175g white chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
Weigh out the flour, baking powder, salt and oats in one bowl and in another bowl put the softened butter in. Add the sugar to the bowl with the butter beat until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla extract.
Put the dry ingredients into the bowl with the butter and beat together, then fold in the cranberries and choc chips.
Roll a tbsp full of dough into a ball and put onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and squash the cookie slightly using a fork.

Cook for 15mins.
Leave the cookies to harden for a couple of minutes on the baking tray before transfering to a wire rack to cool completely.
