White Chocolate and Craisin Cookies

I thought I would re-post this recipe, as Christmas is coming and these are great for this time of the year
I have been baking these for a cake stall today. I ran out of Ground Almonds
So I made the third batch will Ground Cashews
Works very well
You can also substitute craisins, for sultanas and dark choc for white choc
But the best is the original

I got the recipe from Rachel Allen, off her TV programme on Chocolate treats...
Here is one of them
Nice for Christmas Presents
White Chocolate and Craisin Cookies

Heat oven to 180c
Assemble all of the ingredients
This is a very quick method

First melt 150 gms butter and cool a bit

Then into a bowl
150 gms plain flour sifted

1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

Pinch salt

50 gms ground almonds
50 gms rolled oats
60 gms Craisins
100 gms light brown sugar
100 gms white Chocolate chips

1 large egg yolk

When butter has cooled slightly...this is to stop it melting the choc chips
Add the egg
Whisk and add to all the dry ingredients

Place directly on top a baking sheet, you don't need to grease it
Make balls about the size of a ping pong ball as per the 2 on the right
Squash down 2-3 times to flatten with a fork dipped in flour
Just like the 2 on the left

Bake 10-12 minutes
They spread a little

Leave to cool for about 5 minutes on the tray
If you try to move them too soon they will break
and onto a wire rack.
