Run out of time and looking for a last minute Valentine's Day gift to make at home?
Why not try baking some homemade chocolate chip cookies. With real chocolate coupled with the tang of cranberry and pomegranate these cookies are a lovely Valentine gift for him or her. And with all that chocolate and what more says Valentine than chocolate?
The fruit inclusion is a lovely offset from the sugar and the chocolate. We chose to use some lovely, beautiful quality Pomegranate seeds (arils) we purchased online. We included some cranberry for colour and flavour. For the romantics, the Pomegranate has a myth surrounding it. The first pomegranate tree according to myth was planted by Aphrodite the Goddess of Love. Bottom line, it seems like adding some Pomegranate to your Valentine's Day Gift is the way to go.
Including cranberries adds a lovely flavour juxtaposition that offsets any sweetness. If you're baking Valentines cookies at home because you genuinely are really out of time, then you can also use any dried fruit. Just remember that sweeter fruit will make for a sweet cookie.
Cookies are relatively quick to make at home and a fabulous last minute Valentine's Day gift. With preparation and including baking the whole process is about 45 minutes.
Dark Chocolate 110 g ( save about 20g to add to the top of the cookies)
Rolled Oats 100g
100g Brown Sugar
Butter Salted 130g
Pure Vanilla - 1 teaspoon
Cake Flour 210g
Baking Powder 2 g
Bicarb 2 g
Dried Cranberry 25 g
The cookie has a lovely grainy, open texture. There are plenty of chocolate chips to really enjoy this cookie. There's nothing worse than a chocolate chip cookie without enough chips! Any sweetness of the cookie is offset by the slight tang of the cranberry and pomegranate.
If you're looking for some Brownie Points and a last minute Valentine's gift then why not go ahead and bake these cookies.
