1. Line 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper. Preheat oven to 170°C.
  2. In a bowl beat together the butter, Canderel® Bake! Caster Sugar Alternative and golden syrup with a handheld mixer or wooden spoon. Add in the peanut butter and mix through. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt – and then add this to the butter mixture and stir through. Fold in the cranberries.
  4. Spoon out a heaped dessert spoon full of cookie dough and place onto lined tray spaced apart – do not flatten. Make a little dent in the mound a drop in a teaspoon of jam. Carefully enclose the jam in the cookie dough but do not flatten.
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 10-14 minutes (the less time means more gooey) until the cookies flatten slightly, go golden around the edge. Do not over-bake or they will lose their gooeyness – they will harden up once out of the oven.
