Tried and tested freezer cookies -from Rosi &Kittys kitchen

Plan of action for today, freezer cookies! These cookies are so easy to make and can be frozen ahead of time, baked on the day and are just yum. Very handy to keep a few rolls in the freezer incase of unexpected guests. I have substituted the fruit and nuts for various things such as chocolate chips, fresh raspberries and lumps of white chocolate and they still work. Happy baking x Ingredients 175g butter , softened 85g golden caster sugar ½ tsp vanilla extract 225g plain flour 75g pistachios 75g dried cranberries Preparation and cooking times Prep 15 mins Cook 15 mins plus chilling Mix the butter, sugar and vanilla extract with a wooden spoon. stir in the flour, then tip in the pistachios and cranberries - you might need to get your hands in at this stage to bring the mix together as a dough. Halve the dough and shape each half into a log about 5cm across. Wrap in cling film, then chill for 1 hr or freeze for up to 3 months. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. slice the logs into 1cm-thick rounds, place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment and bake for 12-15 mins. Cool completely on the tray. MAKE AHEAD Well wrapped, these dough logs will happily freeze for up to 3 months, meaning you can include freshly made biscuits in your Christmas hampers without any last-minute effort. Simply defrost in the fridge overnight, then slice and cook as above.
