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

25g sultanas

25g raisins

30g white chocolate chip (and a little extra for melting for the cross on the top)


What to do:


Step 1

In a bowl, mix together the soft butter, sugar and egg until really smooth.


Step 2

Sift in the flour, cinnamon and baking powder and keep mixing, You will have a soft wet dough.


Step 3

Add the sultanas, raisins and white chocolate chips into the bowl and mix really well. You can do all this with a wooden spoon.


Step 4

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.


Step 5

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.


Step 6

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.
