Cranberry and White Chocolate Biscuits

When it is a very cold and wet day baking needs to be done. These biscuits are a version of one of my favourite and versatile dough mixtures. The basic dough is made and then the flavours added. Any type of dried fruit will work, nuts can be used and all types of chocolate and choc chips. This version is made with chopped squares of white chocolate which give a slightly chunkier appearance, however, I would have used choc chips if there had been a packet in the pantry.

Cranberry and White Chocolate Biscuits

125 g butter (soft)
1 cup caster sugar or a mixture of caster sugar and brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg

1 3/4cups SR flour
2/3cup white choc chips*
3/4 cup dried cranberries

*approximately 100 g of white chocolate cut into chunks


Cream (beat) butter, sugars and vanilla essence until light and fluffy.  This can be done in a food processor.

Beat in egg

Stir in flour and mix until well combined.  If using the food processor use the pulse action.

Add white choc chips/chunks and cranberries. Mix thoroughly

Roll mixture into small balls. Place onto lightly greased trays approx 4cm apart. Flatten lightly with your fingers.

Bake at 170 deg C until light golden brown. Approximately 15 minutes.
