I don't know about you guys, but I have been spending a lot of time in my kitchen this month. Actually I have been spending a lot of time at home in general. Maybe it's the cold weather that is forcing me to hibernate, but either way I kind of like it! Especially the fact that I have had the chance to test out some recipes that I've been meaning to try! The other day my good friend, Sigrid, came over and brought me the most delicious cookies that I instantly needed the recipe for. They are cranberry white chocolate chip cookies and they are absolutely to die for! Next time you have the urge to bake something, give this recipe a try. It's simple and it seriously won't disappoint.
YOU WILL NEED:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 cup oats or macadamia nuts (whichever you prefer!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
With an electric mixer, cream the butter and both sugars together until smooth. Then add the vanilla and egg. Sift together the flour and baking soda. Spoon the flour mixture gradually into the creamed sugar mixture. Stir in the cranberries, white chocolate, and oats (or nuts.)
Drop by heaping spoonfuls, about 2 tablespoons, onto the prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake one sheet a time for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden. Let cool then enjoy!
Happy baking! XO, Stef
