The cookies came out of the oven smelling sensational! That evil scent of cinnamon I adore. I like them on the small side.Don't get me wrong, it doesn't mean I eat less of them. When fresh from the oven, they're hard to resist...
So here's my favorite recipe of all times. Of course you could tailor them to your liking with chocolate chips,nuts, almonds, toasted pine nuts etc...
- 60 g dried cranberries
- 60 g pecan nuts
- 125g of unsalted butter softened
- 125g of caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 125 g rolled oats
- 150 g plain organic white flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat until creamy and paler in colour. Add the egg, vanilla and oats. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and mix until evenly combined. Stir in cranberries and pecans.
Place dessertspoonfuls of the mixture on the prepared baking sheets, spacing them to allow room for spreading. Flatten slightly with the back of a fork.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes if you like them soft and a few minutes more if you want them more golden. They become firm as they cool. Don't be tempted to bake them until crisp.
Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
