Ingredients 125g unsalted butter 60g (3oz) caster sugar 60g (3oz) soft light brown sugar 1 egg ½ tsp vanilla essence 200g plain flour pinch of salt ¼ tsp ground cinnamon ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda 80g dried cranberries, chopped 60g white chocolate chips plus 60g white chocolate for drizzling


  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C/325°F/Gas mark 3.
  2. Cream together the butter and both types of sugar, then break in the egg, add the vanilla essence and mix well together.
  3. Sift together the flour, salt, cinnamon and bicarbonate of soda, then add to the creamed mixture until a dough forms. Lastly stir in the cranberries and chocolate into the dough.
  4. Wrap in cling film and put in the fridge for half an hour to an hour. Flour a surface and roll out the dough until it is around 1 ½ cm thick (if the dough is too wet, sprinkle flour over the surface of the dough). Using cookie cutters, make shapes out of the dough and place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cookies are a light golden on top. Leave on the sheets for about 10 minutes to cool and set before transferring to a wire rack.
  6. Melt the white chocolate for drizzling, and once the cookies are cool, drizzle over with a spoon.
