These white chocolate chip and cranberry cookies are one of my favourite cookies to make for Christmas but they’re amazing any time of year. The tart taste of cranberries burst through the cookie’s sweetness, and they’re the perfect combination of crispy and chewy.
White Chocolate Chip and Cranberry Cookie Recipe
Is there a more decadent combination than white chocolate and dried cranberries? I’m a sucker for anything that contains white chocolate. Pair it with tart, tangy, dried cranberries, and ohhhh, baby, I’m in heaven!
Remember my Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip and Canberry Cookies? Mmmm! Those are amazing too. I tend to make those cookies around the holidays though. That recipe yields a crazy amount of cookies (like 8 dozen or something), so it’s perfect if you like to bake for friends, neighbours and teachers at Christmas-time.
The cookies you see here are much quicker to make! They’re totally delicious, and the recipe yields a mere 2 dozen cookies. Much more practical for every day baking!
Ok! Let’s get started!
