    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.
