We are off to our church community Christmas party this afternoon, and we have all been asked to bring something to share.
We are on a fairly limited (ok none existent) budget at the moment (meaning we are living on the air of God's provision and the little bit left on our credit card).
Normally I would just turn up with nothing, when I feel stretched at every post like I do currently, but I am learning to challenge myself in my generosity.
This being the case I needed a no fail, no faff recipe that I wasn't going to have to throw out because I had mucked it up.
I have used this Chocolate Chunk Cookie recipe from Joy of Baking, a thousand times (ok I exagerate) but it IS my favourite basic cookie mix recipe.
I REALLY like this site, especially the tested recipes, as they never fail. I mean I have NEVER had a failure with any of them, and I can be a fairly creative and hair brained cook.
I won't repost the recipe because that is just redundant.
Here are the things I changed...
* I used self raising flour so omitted the baking soda (or bi-carb as the rest of the world calls it).
* I added 60 gr of dried sweetened cranberries
* White choc chips INSTEAD of chocolate chunks
* Mine seemed a little sticky so I added a bit more flour.
My gauge is when it just about stops sticking to my hands when I roll, so not too much, just a little.
Here is how they turned out.

Or perhaps I should wait and see what others think later on.
