Cranberry, cinnamon and white chocolate cookies that make the perfect gift

Why not treat your friends and family to a homemade gift this year? Super easy to make, these cookies are a little festive delight


Packed with cinnamon, white chocolate and cranberries, these cookies are truly like the holidays in a bite. And, we think these will make the perfect thoughtful gift for a loved one this festive period. Just package these up in a sustainable cardboard box and add a jazzy ribbon. This recipe is gluten-free, making them healthier than your average cookie but no less delicious. I recommend using Ceylon cinnamon as it has a deliciously subtle yet sweet flavour and is high in antioxidants.
