White Chocolate, Cranberry and Macadamia Cookies

Cookies are high on my list of home made Christmas gifts, they're quick and easy to make and look great packaged up in cute boxes or bags. You'll be seeing a number of cookie recipes over the next couple of weeks as I make them for everyone I can think to give them too.

I love white chocchip cookies, well white chocolate anything really, and these giant cookies are no exception. With macadamia nuts thrown in for a tasty crunch and some cranberries for festive flavour and colour, I think these will be a yummy addition to this years cookie gift boxes.

Oversized White Chocolate, Cranberry and Macadamia Cookies
185 grams butter (melted and cooled)
150 grams white chocolate chips
3/4 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup unsalted macadamia nuts (roughly chopped)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1/2 cup plain flour
1 egg
1 egg yolk

To make the cookies- Preheat oven to 180 degrees c. and line 3 large trays with baking paper.
Add the sugars into a large mixing bowl, sift and both flours and mix together.

Add the eggs and the melted butter to a small bowl and beat together lightly.

Stir the butter and egg mixture into the flour mixture to form a soft dough.

Add the chocolate chips, nuts and cranberries and stir through.
scoop out heaped tablespoons on cookie dough and roll into balls. Place the balls about 3 inches/ 8cm apart to allow for spreading and flatten down.
Bake the cookies for roughly 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on trays.
