Recipe of the week
Hot Cross Cookies
What you will need (will make approx 6 cookies)
50g light muscovado sugar
1/4 beaten egg (approx 15g)
62g plain flour
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
30g white chocolate chip (and a little extra for melting for the cross on the top)
What to do:
In a bowl, mix together the soft butter, sugar and egg until really smooth.
Sift in the flour, cinnamon and baking powder and keep mixing, You will have a soft wet dough.
Add the sultanas, raisins and white chocolate chips into the bowl and mix really well. You can do all this with a wooden spoon.
Make lumps of dough into the size of golf balls. Flatten them onto a baking tray that is lined with greaseproof paper. Keep enough space between each cookie for them to get bigger and spread out when in the oven.
With the help from a grown up, place the baking tray into the oven (pre-heated at 180'C/160 fan/gas mark 4). Bake for approximately 12 minutes until golden brown. Ask a grown up to help you take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool down on a rack.
Melt a little extra while chocolate and then with a small piping bag or a teaspoon, drizzle a corss on the top of each cookie. Leave to set before eating.
Top tip: These are really yummy served with a glass of milk.
