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!

How To Make cranberry-white chocolate cream cheese cookies

  • 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.
