If you are stuck inside during a blizzard, you must make cookies. Not only is it a fun activity to keep the kids busy, but it makes the whole house smell delicious. In honor of Valentine’s Day, I made these red and white Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies. They are easy to make, delicious, and a nice departure from your everyday chocolate chip cookie.
Delicious cookies with a little red and white to celebrate Valentine's Day.
- 1 stick of butter, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs (room temperature)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour (or white whole wheat flour)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
- 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine.
- Beat the butter and sugar together in a mix until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time until combined. Add vanilla and milk.
- Slowly add the flour mixture on a low speed setting. Mix until just combined.
- Fold in cranberries and white chocolate chips.
- Drop large spoonfuls of cookie dough onto parchment or silpat lined cookie sheets.
- Bake 13-15 minutes. Let rest two minutes on cookie sheet, then transfer to cooling racks.
- (I bake two racks at a time and use my convection oven setting. Halfway through I switch the trays so they bake evenly.)
