Every year I go on a major Christmas cookie baking spree and usually make at least 6 different kinds. I have a few that I make every year, and then I like to try some new recipes as well. I seem to have run out of time, so I didn’t make nearly as much as planned, but I am so glad I found time to make these white chocolate and cranberry cookies, which is one of the new recipes I tried this year. These are delicious! The husband would have eaten the entire batch if I hadn’t stopped him. I think they are so festive with the red cranberries and white chocolate chips. If you are still looking for a last minute Christmas cookie recipe that is easy to make, I would give these a try!
White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies
Source: From Allrecipes
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon brandy
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and brandy. Combine the flour and baking soda; stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in the white chocolate chips and cranberries. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. For best results, take them out while they are still doughy. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
