Macadamia and Cranberry Cookies
« on: December 12, 2021, 08:29:33 am »
Macadamia and Cranberry Cookies
These a re as  little different to most biscuits as they are supposed to be flat!
Ingredients
185g unsalted butter
105g macadamias
220g brown sugar ( I used a bit less)
110g caster sugar
225g SR flour
75g plain flour
1 egg
1 egg yolk
100g cranberries
Preparation
Preheat oven to 180* and prepare at least 2 trays.
Toast the macadamias.
Place butter in bowl and melt at 50*, speed 1 until done.
Add flours, sugars, egg and egg yolk (you may like to give them a light beat first)
Knead until mixture comes together.
Add in nuts and cranberries. Mix in by hand or on knead.
Roll into balls (about 1 tablespoon) and place on trays about 6cm apart. Flatten a little and bake for around 12 minutes. Leave to cool on the trays as they are delicate.

This is based on a recipe in WW Christmas Cakes and Puddings. They are very nice. I may try them with pistachios and cranberries to make them more Christmassy.

May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

It looks like a puppy’s face cookie (and sounds delicious).

I thought that Judy. I only had a couple to choose from as the rest were eaten. DH is fond of biscuits.
