These are delicious American cranberry cookies, crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside. Just as they should be. The cookies are packet with chocolate and have a hint of salt, while the vanilla paste that is added to the dough gives them a subtle and lovely aroma. Simply divine! At our house, the children adore them and they get to help with making them. And what could be more fun than getting your hands dirty and making a mess in the kitchen on a gray and rainy day?

American chocolate chip cookies can be served at the next celebration along with a Kinder bueno dessert in a glass.


Makes: 30 cookies.


  • Ingredients for cookies

    • 110 g softened butter
    • 60 g brown sugar
    • 100 g granulated sugar
    • 1 teaspoon BAM vanilla paste
    • 1 egg (medium-sized)
    • 180 g all purpose flour
    • 3 g salt
    • 7 g baking powder
    • 50 g BAM dark chocolate drops
    • 40 g dried cranberries
  • Preparation

    • In the bowl of a standing mixer, beat butter and sugar for one minute using a paddle attachment.
    • Add the vanilla paste and egg and beat until fluffy.
    • Combine the dry ingredients and sift them onto the mixture. Stir just enough to combine the ingredients.
    • Finally, add the chocolate chips and dried cranberries.
    • Refrigerate for at least half an hour. When the dough is well-chilled, use a spoon to weigh out 20 g pieces and roll them into balls.
    • Place the balls on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Make sure to leave enough space between them, as they will spread during baking.
    • Refrigerate the tray with the dough balls for half an hour, as the cookie dough has to be well-chilled before baking. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 190 °C (375 °F).
    • Place the tray in the preheated oven and bake for about 11 minutes.
    • Using a palette knife, transfer the baked cookies to the cooling rack and let them cool completely.

Urška Jerman, who creates under the name Cake O'Clock, has been accompanied and inspired by desserts since she was a child. I was inspired to make them by my mother – I would always observe with fascination while she was preparing food, thrilled whenever I got to participate in the process. My father would show his support by enthusiastically tasting what I made and buying children’s cookbooks that he has kept with great care to this day. These books led me to making a mess in the kitchen on my own, an endeavor that has, over the years, become my career that I love and enjoy.
