I’m sitting here, on the sofa, with the smell of baked goods drifting into the room. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve just finished eating my dinner but as I was so hungry whilst cooking, I poured some cranberries into a bowl and proceeded to snack on them. Which gave me an idea…..
Everybody loves pastry, it’s really easy to make and I guessed that with cranberries it would taste extra yummy. So out came the bowl into which I roughly measured and mixed together the following:
250g of plain flour
1/4 cup of caster sugar
2 tbsp of coconut oil
a handful of cranberries
1/4 cup of cold water
Prep: 5 mins Cook: 25 mins Ready In: 30 mins
- Place the flour and caster sugar into a bowl, working the coconut oil into it.
- Mix in the cranberries and then slowly add the water
- Work the mixture into a dough
- Roll on a floured surface and cut into shapes or leave as one large slab (my preference)
- Place onto a baking tray
I started the oven off on a low heat (150c) for 15 minutes and then turned it up to 200c for a further 10 minutes to give the biscuit a nice colour.
Once removed from the oven I let it cool, broke the slab into pieces and then devoured!
This biscuit mix is great for sharing, so easy to make, yummy and packed full of coconut oil goodness! I prefer these when cold as they become really crunchy and you get that ‘snap’ when eating them. Hubby on the other hand likes them warm when straight out of the oven. They are in fact so good, that I’m thinking about making another batch now, given that the first lot is nearly gone!
I have a large pack of chocolate chips in the cupboard so will do the same with those pretty soon…my mouth is water just thinking about it!
