Pomegranate, rose and white chocolate cookies

makes 12
40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 125g of unsalted butter
  • 100g of caster sugar
  • 150g of condensed milk
  • 225g of self-raising flour, sifted
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • 75g of white chocolate chips
  • 3 tsp rose water
  • 90g of pomegranate seeds

Method

1
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper
2
Cream the butter until it is light and pale in colour and is smooth in consistency. Then add the condensed milk, ground cardamom and rose water, before adding the flour to make soft dough. If you add the pomegranate in too early it will inevitably squash and bleed into the cookie dough
3
Now mix in the chocolate chunks and try and get them evenly distributed into the cookie dough
4
Add in the pomegranate seeds and try and get them also evenly distributed into the dough
5
Using the ice cream scoop, form small balls of the dough and place them onto the baking sheet. Do not pat them down, they spread quite a bit
6
Bake them for 17-20 minutes or until they are golden brown around the edges. Once removed from the oven, wait until they have firmed and cooled before storing them and this should take at least ten minutes
