White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

Roz Blair


This cookie has been a constant in my Christmas cookie gift-giving roster. It's delicious and a change from the chocolate chip variety and especially for those white chocolate fans!

4 dozen


15 Min


10 Min


1 c
butter, softened
1 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1 c
granulated sugar
2 large
1 1/2 tsp
brandy extract
3 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
2 c
vanilla or white chocolate chips
2 c
dried cranberries

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

Cream butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in mixing bowl of electric mixer until creamy and smooth. Beat in eggs and brandy extract. Combine flour and baking soda. Gradually add to creamed mixture until blended.
Stir in white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. (I've used, by accident, orange enhanced cranberries that also are wonderful).

Drop by tablespoonfuls on prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 8 minutes making sure they're slightly underdone in the centers. Cool on sheets for 1 minute. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Yield: 4 dozen

**I have also used the smaller cookie scoop to make even more but the cooking time should be watched carefully if you choose to make smaller than 2" cookies.
