Tuesday

The Perfect Chocolate Chip - White Chocolate and Cranberry



Well, I’m officialy back at school! Which is weird and a little scary but hopefully will be very good in the end! On my second day back my new form teacher announced something called ‘form baking’ which is where our whole form takes turns baking things for our weekly form period. I was, of course, very excited by this idea and immediately offered to bake for our first form period! Form period is on Tuesday and I’ve decided to bake chocolate chip biscuits in an attempt to bake my way to some new friends!

Finding the perfect chocolate chip biscuit recipe is definitely a challenge as there are SO many different kinds. But after lots of searching I think I may have found my perfect recipe. If you’ve ever had Millie’s Cookies  before these biscuits come out pretty similar to them and are VERY yummy. I have three different chocolate chip recipes to share over the next few posts and here is the first and my personal favourite – white chocolate and cranberry! Enjoy.

  1. these look great - really similar to some I cooked on my blog a while back but you use hot water and more sugar. I will def have to try these out and see the difference.

    Anything with more sigar in is normally great in my books!

  4. I'm making this recipe for the second week in a row, the first week I brought them to work and my coworkers thought I was a goddess.

    This batch I'm eating and not sharing. This recipe is amazing.
