  • cup brown sugar
  • cup caster sugar
  • cups plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground all spice
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips
  • 75 g butter melted
  • 1 large egg whisked
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or essence


  • Preheat oven to 190°C. Line two oven trays with baking paper.
  • Measure dry ingredients into a large bowl including cranberries and chocolate and stir to combine.
  • Add melted butter, egg and vanilla and mix gently to form a dough. Take care not to overmix. If mixture seems a little dry, add 1-2 tablespoons of milk or melted butter until it reaches dough consistency.
  • Measure slightly heaped tablespoons of dough and roll into balls. Place onto prepared trays about 4-5cm apart. Flatten slightly with the back of a fork.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Swap trays halfway to ensure even baking. Leave to cool on tray for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks, or freeze.
