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!

Comments & Reviews

  1. 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?…

  2. I made these and they were a bit bland. Maybe it was the white chocolate chips I bought (there is only 1 brand available here in Mexico) but other than that they were just ok. Nice recipe, a nice change from chocolate, chocolate that I usually prepare at Xmas time. People here dont prepare “goodies” to give as gifts so they all think I’m crazy to do all the work to just give it away!

  3. I’m trying to find recipes that call for cherry extract in them. Cherry chips are NEVER available here but my friend brought me 2 jars of cherry extract from Nebraska. Problem is I cant find any recipes that call for it. I used to know of a recipe called “Twin Bing Bars” (Twin Bings are a famous candy bar made in Sioux City Iowa, where I’m from) that I’d like to make but cant seem to find it either. If anyone could send me or direct me to recipes using cherry extract, my email is: ddmorado@hotmail.com. Thank you!! Merry Christmas everyone.

  4. Loved this recipe! The cookie was amazing. However I rolled the cookie in thin sliced almonds before baking. They were even better! Highly recommend.
