cranberry & white chocolate cookies

Hands down, Subway cookies are the best. Like, the best.

Okay okay, I may be a little biased, but seriously. Who doesn't like cookies that are chewy, flavoursome and chunky?

I was searching for a recipe that was just that: chewy, flavoursome and chunky.  And while these didn't taste exactly like the real thing, they came pretty close! They're chewy and chunky - not as flavoursome as I'd hoped, but my family loved them. Another recipe to add to my books!

Here's my take on this recipe.

Cranberry & White Chocolate Cookies
Makes about 30 cookies

3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 cup dried cranberries

Line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a large bowl using a beater, cream the butter and sugars together on medium speed until fluffy and light in colour. Mix in egg and vanilla and scrape down the sides as needed. On low speed, mix in flour, cornstarch and baking soda. Stir in white chocolate chips & dried cranberries. Chill dough (covered) for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 180C. Drop balls of dough (1.5 tablespoons each) onto baking tray. Bake for 8-9 minutes, until barely golden brown around the edges. Do NOT cook them longer than 9 minutes. Remove and let cool for 5-10 minutes on the cookie sheet. Transfer to cooling rack.
