Cranberry Golden syrup Vanilla Oat Cookies

My little grandson (he was 7) popped in with his Mum and Dad. That’s not unusual in itself, but I wasn’t expecting them, so I was busy working away editing video clips to post on Youtube.

Kids these days watch Youtube rather than cartoons (how strange). Anyway, he thinks I’m famous now. Hahaha.  Don’t tell him I’m not, he thinks everyone in the world has seen me now.  It’s even funnier because his Dad is on Youtube all the time doing motorsport and fabrication and he didn’t know that either.  He’s so proud of us, bless him.

After looking at a few of our videos, he decided he wanted to be in a video too.  I told him we had to do something that was worth putting up (none of that crazy stuff he watches – LOL). We sat down and wrote a recipe together.  We went into the pantry where he picked out cranberries, golden syrup, vanilla and oats and we came up with these.  The video we made is at the bottom of this post.

Equipment

  • 1 Thermomix

Ingredients
  

  • 270 gm rolled oats
  • 225 gm plain flour
  • 150 gm caster sugar
  • 140 gm dried cranberries washed and soaked in boiling water
  • 1/2 teaspoon Bec’s warming spice or 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 90 gm golden syrup
  • 125 gm unsalted butter chopped into cubes
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

Instructions
 

Thermomix Method

  • Preheat oven to 160°C.
  • If the cranberries are huge chop in half before soaking then set aside
  • Weigh the oats, flour, sugar and spice in the TM bowl and mix to combine 5 seconds / reverse speed + 3 then remove from the bowl and set aside
  • Weigh the golden syrup, butter and vanilla into the TM bowl and set for 5 minutes / 70 °c / speed 1
  • Drain the cranberries in a colander
  • When the butter and golden syrup have finished warming add the bicarb into the syrup and all the other ingredients and set for 20 seconds / reverse speed plus 5 Check to see if you have to scrape down the sides and repeat for 3 seconds.
  • Roll into 30 g balls and place onto baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper. Allow enough room for them to spread and bake for around 12 – 15 minutes or until deep golden brown.
  • When you remove them from the oven, they will feel very soft, but as long as they're deep golden brown, they'll firm up when they cool. Leave them on the baking tray until cool enough to handle then remove onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

Conventional Method

  • Preheat oven to 160°C.
  • If the cranberries are huge chop in half before soaking then set aside
  • Weigh the oats, flour, sugar and spice in a bowl and mix to combine.
  • Place the golden syrup, butter and vanilla in a small saucepan and heat on low, stirring, for a few minutes until melted.
  • In the meantime drain the cranberries in a colander
  • Stir in the bicarbonate of soda into the syrup. Pour the warm syrup mixture into the oat mixture add the cranberries and mix well to combine and soften.
  • Roll into 30 g balls and place onto baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper. Allow enough room for them to spread and bake for around 12 – 15 minutes or until deep golden brown.
  • When you remove them from the oven, they will feel very soft, but as long as they're deep golden brown, they'll firm up when they cool. Leave them on the baking tray until cool enough to handle then remove onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

Notes

Make sure these are a deep golden brown before removing them from the oven. 
NOTE:
Many of the biscuit recipes on my blog were written and tested before I developed my new Perfect Cookie Method for the Thermomix and Food processors. However, even though the above method may not be what’s in my  “Perfect Cookie Making Course”, we’ve tested this recipe in 3 separate bake club sessions by my students, and it works a treat.  However, If you’ve done my course, I suggest you download the recipe template and follow the instructions.  That method is much quicker and easier.  😉
