Blogmas Day 1: Cranberry, White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Welcome to Blogmas!

I thought what better way to start the Christmas posting than with a baking post.

And here we are with the first Christmas Cookies recipe. Cranberry, white chocolate chip cookies! They turned out to be absolutely delicious and very simple to make.

The ingredients needed are common ingredients one may have already in their pantry so hopefully you will not need to purchase too much more.

This recipe made just about a dozen, I like my cookies to be rather large and we did nibble at the cookie dough, haha so it could make more depending on the cookie size you prefer!

Ingredients you will need:

1 package of semi-sweet white chocolate chips

1 package of dried cranberries

3/4 cup unsalted butter at room temperature

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1 egg

2 cups flour
2 tsp of cornstarch

1 tsp of baking soda

pinch salt

Directions:

In a mixing bowl, beat together the sugars and butter. I used a wooden spoon and mixed by hand until well joined together. Add in vanilla extract and the egg and mix until a smooth texture forms. Next stir in the flour, cornstarch and baking soda until a proper cookie dough has formed.

I then folded in the cranberries and white chocolate chips. It says to fold in a cup of each, however I used an entire bag because I like my cookies extra chunky and it turned out to be the perfect amount.

Refrigerate the dough for one hour! This is important for the cookies to turn out really good!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and lightly grease a cookie sheet.

Roll the cookie dough into flat patties and place evenly on the cookie sheet. Like I said I like cookies to be rather large, therefore formed a patty that was approximately 2-3 teaspoons of dough. Spread evenly as they will spread out while in the oven.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Can check with a fork to see if they are cooked fully.

Let cool and enjoy! I find once they have been in the fridge overnight they become a little more crunchy and I really love that!

Let me know if you make these and what you think of them! 🙂
