I Love How Soft And Chewy These Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies Are

I have always loved this flavor of cookie, but the last time a made them was a couple years ago and they were from a mix (gasp!). I don’t actually have anything against mixes, but I do like having control over just how perfectly my cookie tastes. I’m a control freak like that. 😉

And these babies are just like I like them – full of cranberries and white chocolate, and soft and chewy. They’re also pretty big cookies. The more, the merrier I say. And this is a merry time of year.

And guess who was merry this weekend! Yes, I was. But mostly is was Jessie (our black lab). She turned 3 on Friday! I can’t believe she’s already 3. She’ll always be my baby. 🙂

I got her a nice big bone, a doggie birthday cake and she had a day at doggie daycare.

Now I know what you’re thinking. She’s a dog. She doesn’t even know it’s her birthday and you’ve done all that! Well, yes. Yes I did. I’d swear she knows all! She has such personality, it’s amazing. And since we don’t have kids and she is the first dog I’ve ever had, she is spoiled to the max. It took me a good few months to not go buy her a new toy every couple of weeks. You think I’m kidding? The hubs was going to have me banned from pet stores. It was bad.

White Chocolate Chip Cookies With Cranberries

And these cookies? Well she’d love them. If she was allowed to have them, that is. I do have limits. Very few, but they exist. In fact, my family goes to Hilton Head every summer for a week and there is this one restaurant (called Skillets Grille and Cafe) where they literally have a menu specifically for dogs. No joke. I still have a picture of it on my phone. One of the meals is called Tailwagging Turkey and here is the description:

Recipe For Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies

“More than a holiday feast, your dog will be giving thanks for this delightful meal. Tender Turkey sauteed with tomatoes and brown rice, made with filtered water of course. Add pureed peas and carrots, low fat yogurt, wheat germ, virgin olive oil and garlic. Good enough to make Pilgrims and Indians get along.”

Perfect for Thanksgiving, don’t you think? We never get to bring Jessie with us to Hilton Head because we don’t stay in a place where you can have dogs, but I won’t lie. If we could take her, I’d treat her to a doggie meal. Only $6.

I know. I need help.

These easy to make Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies are super soft and chewy! They are the perfect homemade dessert recipe for the holidays.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda

1. Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
2. Mix in egg and vanilla extract.
3. Add flour, cornstarch and baking soda and mix until combined.
4. Stir in white chocolate chips and cranberries . Dough will be thick.
5. Chill for at about 2 hours or overnight.
6. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
7. For larger cookies (like pictured) make balls about 3 tbsp in size. Flatten them out a bit and place onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 9-10 minutes, or until the edges look firm and slightly golden but the center is still soft. Cool for 1-2 minutes on cookie sheet, then finish cooling on a cooling rack.
8. For smaller cookies, make balls about 1 1/2 tbsp in size. Flatten them out a bit and place onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 7-8 minutes, or until the edges look firm and slightly golden but the center is still soft. Cool for 1-2 minutes on cookie sheet, then finish cooling on a cooling rack.

Notes

The colder the cookie dough, the less it will spread during baking.

    Hej Lindsay i love your website and your recipes. I have one problem though.. i find your recipes to be difficult to follow since you use cups for measurements instead of grams. Can you maybe also add the measurements in grams, so people in Europe like me can also follow your delicious recipes.

    Thank you.
