Annabel Karmel Gluten Free Cranberry & White Chocolate Cookies 

If  you know me a little then you know cooking is not my forte: it’s not an activity that I particularly enjoy doing solo; however there is something special about cooking with your little ones. Catherine LOVES helping out in the kitchen: she can pretend to wash dishes for hours; the kitchen gets literally flooded but she has so much fun and I’m then able to do stuff: I say it’s a good compromise.

We don’t have the luck to live in a country where the sun is shining often so we spend lots of time indoors and baking has become our favorite mummy-daughter activity.

Catherine puts her little apron on which is such a vintage piece as it was my mum’s, then mine for when I used to go to my grandparents’ house and now it’s hers: it always puts a smile on my face when I see her wearing it.

Annabel Karmel has made the task to find a recipe that is suitable for little ones effortless thanks to her app which we rely on so much lately. It features a good array of choices for babies, toddlers and for the whole family.

This time we decided to go for the gluten free Cranberry & White Chocolate Cookies and we loved them. Catherine was super sweet as she saved some for her teacher too!

Now to the recipe:


  • 150 gr lighlty suited butter at room temperature
  • 150 gr brown soft sugar
  • 1 egg, lighlty beaten
  • vanilla extract
  • 150 g gluten free white flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp gluten free baking powder
  • 100 gr white chocolate chopped
  • 50 gr dried cranberries
  • water as needed


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and prepare your baking tray with some oven paper.
  • In a bowl beat butter and sugar until they get creamy and pale.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract little by little and beat until everything is combined.
  • Stir in the flour, white chocolate, cranberries, baking powder and water until throughly combined. Pour a tablespoon of the mixture onto your tray and be careful to leave enough space as they will spread while cooking.
  • Bake for 15 minutes and then wait for a couple of minute before storing them to allow them to cool down.



You can also combine all the ingredients in a pretty jar, write the recipe on a pretty piece of pacer and use them as a little gift: such a cute idea!
