Pomegranate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

 

 
The good thing about working-from-home is that apart from doing the job, you get the freedom to do your own stuff as well. Had it not been for my job, I doubt whether I would have been spending so much of my time in front of the computer. One way or the other, my browsing sessions end in food related sites.
As usual, while I was browsing for recipes, I was drawn towards Pomegranate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies in Two peas their pod‘s blog. Pomegranates in cookies??? That was something unusual and I love taking the unusual path when it comes to cooking 🙂 Ensuring that I had all the ingredients, I set about with my work. J, who isn’t too fond of sweets ended up gobbling a few of them in one go… 🙂 They are too delicious for words.
 

Pomegranate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup Unsalted butter , at room temperature (I used salted butter and omitted salt)
  • 1/2 cup Brown sugar Light
  • 1/2 cup White sugar
  • 1 Egg large
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups All purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Oats Old fashioned (I used 1/2 cup and 1/2 cup cornflakes)
  • 1 cup Chocolate White chunks
  • 1 cup Pomegranate arils

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180C . Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
  • Cream butter and sugars together until smooth.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Slowly add flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix until just incorporated.
  • Stir in the oats and white chocolate chunks.
  • Make lemon sized dough balls.
  • Tuck about 6-8 pomegranate arils in each cookie dough ball. Make sure you don't squish the pomegranate or else there will be a discolouration.
  • Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, until the cookies are golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Notes

Note :- These cookies can be made without pomegranates as well.
