Oat, Cranberry and White Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Customer recipe by Paula Drummond
Added 73 months ago

These cookies combine the familiar flavours of brown sugar and spices with the sweetness of dried cranberries and white chocolate. They also get a sophisticated twist from the tahini. I experimented with using tahini in place of some of the butter in cookie recipes as it helps to lower the saturated fat by more than 60% whist also adding a delicious nutty flavour twist. Also lovely for Christmas!

Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 180°C.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Mix together oats, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.

In a separate bowl, beat tahini and butter with an electric mixer until blended into a paste.

Add brown sugar and continue beating until well combined. The mixture will still be a little grainy.

Beat in eggs, then egg white, then vanilla.

Stir in the oat mixture with a wooden spoon until just moistened. Stir in chocolate chunks and cranberries.

With damp hands, roll 1 generous tablespoon of the batter into a ball, place it on a prepared baking sheet and flatten it until squat, but don’t let the sides crack. Continue with the remaining batter, spacing the flattened balls approximately 2 inches apart.

Bake the cookies until golden brown, about 15 minutes, switching the pans back to front and top to bottom halfway through.

Cool on the pans for 2 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Let the pans cool for a few minutes before baking another batch.

Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days or freeze for longer storage. Wet your hands before forming the cookie batter into balls then flattening them - the cookies keep their shape much better.
