This is a Cookie Recipe which I have made in a Giant Cookie but can also be made into normal cookies; as also can give variations like substituting the almonds for any other nuts or the cranberries for black currants or raisins!!
I even added Thandai powder to one such cookie n it really added a unique Indian Flavour!! Just add 2 tsp thandai powder to the recipe.
Ingredients for GIant Oats Cranberry Cookie
- Half cup butter room temperature
- Half cup granulated white sugar
- Half cup demerara brown sugar

Method of making GIant Oats Cranberry Cookie
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
Mix the flour with the baking soda and sieve: keep aside.
Take the butter in a big mixing bowl n whisk for about 30 secs; then add both the sugars and beat again for about a minute; add the vanilla extract, the milk n beat for a minute again.
Now take the flour mixture and slowly incorporate it into the above-wet mixture and beat till just about mixed; remember we don’t have to beat more as we are baking a cookie a, d not a cake.
Then with a spatula mix in the oats and then the cranberries and almonds very gently; the dough should be smooth and creamy.
Take a round 9″ pan and line it with parchment paper; press the whole cookie dough into the pan very lightly; see to it that it is even all over.
Now bake for 20 to 25 minutes till done; do not overbake as the cookies continue to bake even after they are removed from the oven!!
You know the cookie is done when the aroma fills the Air!! I love the Aroma of freshly baked cookies.
You can decorate this Giant Cookie with white chocolate and some sprinkles ; or can even use some butter icing if you like!!
If you don’t want to make a giant cookie simply make smaller cookies out ofthe same dough!!
So here’s wishing you all A Happy and Healthy Women’s Day!!
