White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

 Um... these are delicious. I just had myself a little baking night with my friend, Ellen Griffin and she decided to make these. I'm so glad she did because this recipe is a keeper for sure. It's a simple chocolate chip cookie recipe, but we replaced chocolate chips with white chocolate chips and craisins. You use whatever you please, because this recipe is just good no matter what you put in it. I wasn't expecting these to be worth blogging because I already have a few basic cookie recipes on here, but I was wrong. So that means I didn't take step-by-step pictures. I apologize. I took pictures of the finished cookies, and the pictures don't do these justice, just trust.

White Chocolate Craisin Cookies
1 cup butter, soft
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, room temperature if possible
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups craisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter, vanilla, sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add in eggs; mix well. Add in flour, baking soda and salt. Beat until well combined. Stir in white chocolate chips and craisins by hand. Drop about a 1/2 tablespoon (or whatever your desired cookie size is) onto the baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. The cookies do not really brown, so don’t over bake them!

  1. Chocolate and Cranberries is a really deadly combination. I really hope I will survive this... eating choco chip cookies can really be addicting. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will treat myself for gaining my Alcohol Server Certification license.
