Cranberry and white chocolate cookies

It´s November, so I can totally start baking with cranberries, right?

I´ve been wanting to try this Nigella Lawson recipe (from her amazing book Feast) for years.  I love the sweet and tangy combination of cranberries and chocolate.   I changed Nigella´s recipe just a smidge.  I used both white and dark chocolate chunks.  I added the seeds from one vanilla bean.  Instead of pecans I used walnuts.  I think walnuts and chocolate are amazing together, especially in cookie form.  I brought a batch of these to work today.  All gone by lunch time!

Cranberry and chocolate cookies

1 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup rolled oats

1 stick plus one tbs butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1/2 cup white chocolate chips

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and oats, in a medium bowl.  Set aside.  Combine the butter and both sugars in the bowl of an electric mixture.  Add egg, vanilla, and vanilla bean seeds.

Beat the flour mixture into the sugar mixture.  Add in both kind of chocolate, cranberries, and walnuts.  Put the cookie dough in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.

Roll the dough into tablespoon sized balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet and squish the balls down with a fork or spoon.

Bake for 15 minutes.
