About Me

Married to my soulmate with 2 beautiful girls,and our English Springer Spaniel, Suki. Living a country life in Cambridgeshire, whilst baking, gardening, and photographing our daily lifes, where they find a place on my scrapbook pages.

My little place on the web

This blog is just that, my little place on the web.You will find my daily (or not so daily, hehe)life, my love for my new vegetable garden, baking, photography and my scrapbooking!

My Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me now.It has been for over 4 years. I love journaling, taking photos of my family and love colour and texture, these are all part of my everyday life and scrapbooking.

Cookie Monster

blogged by me domestic goddess On 12/22/2008 10:10:00 PM
Its that time of year, and that means I am chained to the kitchen. Well not literally as I love cooking and baking, I feel at home in the kitchen, and the pleasure on faces when they bite into today's cookie is worth the pain in my side now, LOL. As I am not doing much else but bake at the moment, my blog posts will resemble more of Nigella at Christmas, than scrapping!

Without further ado, with the help of my little assistant, Lilly and I bake Cranberry and white chocolate cookies; dodgy photos as the light in my kitchen is horrid!


150g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
75g rolled oats ( healthy eh!)
125g soft butter
75g dark brown sugar
100g caster sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
75g dried cranberries
150g White chocolate chips or buttons

To make
Preheat oven to 180c and line 2 baking sheets
measure flour, baking powder, salt and oats into a bowl

Put the butter and sugars in another bowl and beat until creamy, then beat in the egg and vanilla essence

Add the flour mixture and then fold in the cranberries and chocolate chips

take a small chunk of mixture, about the size of a walnut, in your hands and roll into a ball and squish flatish onto the baking sheet

Cook for 15 minutes in till golden brown
Leave to cool and harden for about 5 minute
Put the kettle on and enjoy with a nice cuppa!

Freeze tip: these freeze well. Allow to cool then place in sealable bags and defrost at room temperature

Tomorrow I will share the most delicious Chocolate Christmas cookies. Thankfully we made them today so did grab some photos as most of them have gone!
Are you all ready for the holidays? I am off food shopping tomorrow and preparing for a Christmas Eve dinner party, and continuing my traditional baking marathon!
Hugs and thanks for stopping by
Anna xx
