How to Make Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Put the cranberries in a wide and shallow bowl; pour in a bit of the orange juice. Enough so they're surrounded by it, but not drowning.
    Cover and place in the refrigerator for an hour or more. Afterwards, place a colander over a bowl and pour the cranberries and orange juice through, putting the cranberries and the orange juice they soaked in aside.
  • 2Beat the butter until light and fluffy.
    Add the sugars and beat again.
    Add the eggs, vanilla and 1 1/4 tsp. of the orange juice.
    Beat until light and fluffy.
  • 3Sift the dry ingredients together, then add to the butter-sugar mixture, a bit at a time, beating until just mixed.
    Fold in the cranberries and white chocolate chips and the almonds.
    Let chill for 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • 4Place rounded tablespoonfuls down on an ungreased cookie sheet.
    Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
    Cool for a minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
