White chocolate and cranberry cookies

Well made cookies are bliss! Thick, chewy, soft, not too sweet and full of flavour. Right? Bite sized goodness!

I recently made these amazing chocolate chip cookies which made me believe that those blissful cookies are super easy to make at home! But be warned, these are addictive and it is very hard to eat just one 🙂 Given how big a hit these were, I knew I needed to make more flavour options with a similar batter. The possibilities are endless! The first one I chose – cranberry and white chocolate! Sounds odd? It is all sorts of delicious.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies have been my go-to for as long as I can remember. Growing up, we used to get only plain, vanilla biscuits for the longest time. But once the market opened up and people’s preferences became more varied, we started seeing a lot more ‘fancy’ cookies in the market. One of the first new types was the chocolate chip. It started off as the thinner, crisper variety (the recipe of which shall be up soon), but then also added on the thicker, chewier version. My aunts used to get the chewy chocolate chip cookies from the US as well – those were these super luxury goodies for us back in the day. And so delicious!

On my recent trip to New York, I tried a ton of cookies. Like really a ton. My favourite were from this bakery called Levain. BEST COOKIES EVER! Massive, thick, dense, chewy and full of chocolate in every bite. Heaven!

While these aren’t at that level yet (I promise to try to replicate those), these are pretty much bang on in terms of thick, chewy cookies. I ate way too many in the process of testing, all worth it, I say 😀

Peanut Butter Cookies

For me, cookies are synonymous with quick bites of goodness. They are crunchy yet chewy, have bursts of flavour and leave you feeling content with just a few bites. One good cookie can really change your mood and bring a smile to your face.

To top it off, they are fairly easy to make and have such a variety of flavours that the options seem endless. One of my favourite flavours, in life, is peanut butter. This lends itself extremely well to cookies. Extra buttery (regular + peanut butter!), a mix of salty and sweet, crunchy on the outside and melt-in-the-mouth overall. YUM.
