Winter is all about baking and holiday treats. Here is a sweet little cookie to add to your list. It was a hit at work and at home. The white chocolate and cranberries gave a nice holiday touch and just enough sweetness and tartness to this cookie.
For this recipe you will need flour, egg, butter, white and brown sugar, baking soda, cornstarch cranberries, and vanilla extract. Yes this recipe has a lot of ingredients but it is worth it.
Begin creaming the butter and the sugar together.
Once creamed add the egg and vanilla. (I tripled the recipe so you see three eggs in the picture.)
Once mixed, add the dry ingredients.
Blend until mixed well.
To this add the white chocolate chips and cranberries.
Mix this by hand until well mixed.
The recipe says to chill the dough for one hour or over night. I would not do this overnight since that is what I did and the dough was so hard that I could not scoop it out. Alternatively, I would pre-scoop out the dough when it is soft and then put the dough into the fridge over night. The chilling did help the cookies not spread too much.
Portion the dough into balls and bake for about 10-15 minutes. I baked mine until the cookies started getting golden brown.
The cookies come out soft when you first take them out of the oven. Allow to cool for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
You can package these and give them away as gifts. They are super tasty and chewy. I thought they were too sweet but others thought it was just fine. Next time I make them I would cut down the sugar a bit.
These cookies will also make a great addition to your holiday cookie boxes.
White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies (2 dozen cookies)
- 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar (I would switch to 1/4 cup to make it less sweet)
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
Cream the butter and sugar until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla extract and blend well. In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda and corn starch). Add the dry ingredients to the butter and combine. With a spoon mix in the cranberries and white chocolate by hand.
Pre scoop out the batter into balls. Place in the fridge for 1 hour or more.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place cookie dough balls onto baking sheets and bake for 10-15 minutes. Rotate the cookies half way. I baked until the cookies were starting to get golden. Enjoy them with a nice cup of coffee.
