[Cook it] Crannie, cashew and white chocolate biscuits (one bowl baking)

Do you ever get that urge to just cook something on a Sunday afternoon? Specifically bake? I do. Plus I don't want to leave the house and have to go get extra ingredients so it must be something that can be made with whatever is in the pantry.

I had an urge to cook something with sultanas and was going to make chocolate and sultana biscuits but then the crannies called out to me. I do like a crannie in a cookie.

Cranberries and white chocolate were calling out for a nut and I found some cashews, so in they went. I think these would taste awesome with some macadamia nuts also.

Here are some combo's that would be great:

1. Dark choc / sour dried cherries / macadamias
2. Milk chocolate / cut up apricots / macadamias
3. White chocolate / sultanas / macadamias

Noticing a trend . . . . yep, I love macademia nuts. You could use your favourite in place as well though.

So here is the one bowl recipe!

Recipe loosely based on this recipe from Donna Hay.

125gm butter
3/4 C brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1.5 C (225gm) self raising flour
100gm white chocolate, chopped
3/4 C nuts and dried fruit (about half chopped cashews, half dried crannies)

1. Melt butter in a large bowl in microwave, when melted add brown sugar and vanilla and mix. Once cooled down a little add egg and stir.

2. Add flour and mix until smooth. Add in white chocolate and your fruit and nut mix.

3. Place 2 tablespoon sized mounds on tray (lined with silicone mat or baking paper). They spread a bit, so try and leave sufficient space. If they happen to spread into each other, just use a knife to separate.

4. Cook for approximately 12 minutes at 180 degrees celcius.

5. Let cool on try and then try not to eat them all!
