  • 250 g butter at room temperature
  • 200 g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 75 g caster sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 300 g plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 80 g dried cranberries
  • 80 g dark chocolate chips


  • Pre-heat your oven to 180°c. Lightly grease a couple of baking trays.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and both sugars until creamy.
  • Add the vanilla extract and eggs, beat well into the creamy mixture.
  • Fold in the flour, bicarbonate of soda, dried cranberries and dark chocolate chips. The dough should be of a smooth consistency.
  • Tear off golf ball sized pieces, roll them into balls using your hands, place them on the baking sheet about 5cm apart and press down slightly to flatten them.
  • Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 15 - 20 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven, transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.


Keep the cookies in an air-tight sealed container. The cookies will be good for a week.
