Cranberry walnut oat cookies

    Cookies waiting to go through baptism by fire. All passed!
    This version is a chewy version of cookies spiked with sponge fingers due to the presence of oats and cranberries. I thought it would be a good deterrent to a certain compulsive cookie monster because it takes a longer time to chew and eat every tiny morsel.

    But the cookie monster is  blessed with strong teeth and nothing deters her from cookies, chewy or otherwise. I am not sure if it speaks volumes about my baking style but I know a cheerful eater when I see one.

    Makes about 40 cookies.

    Ingredients for pulsing :
    6  sponge fingers, finely processed
    70g finely chopped walnuts
    30g cranberry, minced
    20g quick cooking oats
    80g plain flour
    1 tsp sea salt flakes for sprinkling

    Ingredients for whisking :
    100g butter, softened
    40g caster sugar  

    Method :
    All the ingredients were prepared by the food processor for even texture.

  1. Process fingers,walnut,cranberry,oats to fine crumbs. Add flour. Mix to combine all the ingredients.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, 5 minutes.
  3. Whisk in dry ingredients at low speed until just combined.
  4. While scooping out cookies for baking , preheat oven to 180C.
  5. Scoop even amount of cookie dough to a well greased baking tray. Cookies will not  spread much during baking, so snuggle up the cookie dough closer than usual, about 2 cm apart.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 13 minutes.
  7. Cool completely before storing.
