A friend of mine bought me a similar cookie at a local fast-food sub-sandwich shop and I knew I'd have to try to match it. Here's my take and I like them even better!

Ingredients

8 Tbsp
unsalted butter
3 oz
cream cheese, softened
1 c
granulated white sugar
1 c
all purpose flour
1/2 tsp
table salt
3/4 c
(about 4.5 ounces) chopped dried cranberries
3/4 c
(about 5.5 ounces) white chocolate chips

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Set an oven rack in the center position and preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet (or two 1/2-sheets) with parchment paper.
2
Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle blade, beat the butter, cream cheese and sugar together until they are light and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Mix in the flour and salt until just incorporated. Mix in the dried cranberries and white chocolate chips. Scrape down the bowl and, make sure everything is evenly mixed.
3
Drop the batter in rounded tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet(s), leaving about 1 1/2 inches between each cookie. I use a #50 (about 1 1/3 tablespoons) portion scoop and get 24 cookies. Bake them for about 12 minutes, until the edges are golden brown. Do not over-bake or the cookies won't be chewy. Let them cool slightly on the sheet, then, using a spatula, remove them to a rack to cool completely.
