Cranberry & Oat Cookies

After I saw the bloggers posted the nice picture on their blog, i think i should invest a new camera. I've been using handphone to take picture all the while and some of it quite blur :oP.

I'm submitting this Cranberry & Oat Cookies recipe to Aspiring Bakers #3 My Favourite CNY Cookies from Jess's Kitchen blog.

I followed the recipe from the book "I Love Tasty and Healthy Treats"  by Alan Kok. I never taste Cranberry before and this is my first time to bake with cranberry. I like the cranberry taste, it is not so sweet and taste little bit of sour.

160gm butter
80gm icing sugar
1/2 egg
150gm plain flour, mixed with,
1/2 tsp baking powder
50gm dried cranberries
50gm chocolate chips
150gm rolled oats
50gm walnuts, coarsely chopped (i toasted it)

1. Preheat oven to 160C. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper
2.Cream butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and stir well, Add in the remaining ingredients and mix into a dough.
3. Divide the dough into small portions and arrange onto the lined baking tray. Use a fork to press lightly.
4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 mins or until cooked. ( i bake 30mins due to my small oven).
Remove and leave for cool before serving.


  1. this is really a healthy cookie! oppose to those we normally have during CNY! looks good!

    ahh do invest in a good camera if you can lol i had changed 2 cameras just for my blog haha!

  2. ya..it is really healthy with oat, cranberries and walnut and not sweet though..

    ya loh i should invest one good camera...which model is good? i saw u guys take a nice photograph. :o)

  3. I think Canon S95 is quite nice.
    I've seen some bloggers taking pics of it in low light, looks nice.
    Swee San of the The Sweet Spot is using it.
    My Sony Ericsson TX5 is nice outdoors, but low light for food, is just so so. So u might want to skip that.
    But then again, all pictures needs to be edited.
    Mine are always edited to boost the lighting.
    Don't think they come out that way straight from the camera.

  4. i would suggest either nikon or canon you got a brand you favor in mind?

  5. Hi ladies, thks for the idea..im a canon's fan..i will google the model.:oP
