White Chocolate Chip & Cranberry Cookies…

IMG_8545

As a child  was always hovering around my parents as they cooked. I think it came to mum as a huge relief when I began offering to cook the family dinners and bake. Still at mums place now there is a big plastic container full of ‘my things’ – ranging from holiday themed patty cases to cookie cutters that I have purchased over the years. I have always loved trying to make something new, and I was really fortunate to have 2 brothers who absolutely devoured anything that was put in front of them – and they are fortunate that they attend the gym regularly!

When it comes to cooking, I really enjoy it and it is no doubt the European in me that believes cooking for people is a way of showing you care. It should be fun, and easy and a time to allow yourself to be creative.

I love recipes that are simple yet different, and these white chocolate chip and cranberry cookies just tick every box.
