Cookies Galore

On Sunday, Pinterest introduced me to a new blog, Naturally Ella.  To cater to my undeniable sweet tooth, I tried Naturally Ella's recipe for White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies.  They turned out great!  This recipe makes LOTS of large cookies, so be sure to invite friends over to help you enjoy them. 

White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

  • 12 tablespoon butter (room temperature preferred)
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  1. Preheat oven to 375˚.
  2. Beat the butter and sugars together until mixture is fluffy. Add vanilla, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and egg.  Continue to beat until everything is well-incorporated. Slowly add flour, and mix well. Fold in white chocolate chips and cranberries.
  3. Scoop mixture onto a cookie sheet.  I took Naturally Ella's advice and used an ice cream scoop so I would have large cookies. Flatten slightly.
  4. Bake for about 12 minutes or until edges are lightly brown.  (Centers will not be set but will continue to cook after removed from oven. Any longer than this and the cookie will have tough edges.)  Let cool for about 5 minutes on cookie sheet and then move to a cooling rack or plate.
