White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

White chocolate and cranberry cookie recipe

I had never eaten a white chocolate with cranberry cookie. Ever. So don’t judge me if these are not what you were expecting. I took my basic cookie dough recipe and made them festive.
 
And in the process I fell in love.

Why didn’t anyone ever tell me how GOOD these cookies taste? What a perfect combination of flavors. If you have never tried them, go ahead. Live a little this year!

    I was thinking about adding orange zest to the dough, what do you think about that? I haven’t made these cookies yet so I was wondering?…
