Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Here is the recipe for these Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies! It’s a super basic cookie recipe that is perfect for the holidays!
Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients
Here’s What You Need:
2 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Cup unsalted butter (softened)
¾ cup packed brown sugar
¾ cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Cup dried cranberries
1 Cup white chocolate chips
Combine the “dry ingredients” (flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt) in a small bowl and mix well.
Using a hand mixer, cream the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together until combined.
Add in the egg and vanilla.
Slowly add the “dry ingredients” to the “wet ingredients” and mix well.
Fold in the dried cranberries and white chocolate chips with a spoon or spatula.
Cover the mixing bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
After the dough is chilled, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator and let it sit for about 10 minutes.
Roll the dough into 1” balls and place 2” apart on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper.
Flatten each ball of dough and add extra cranberries and chocolate chips to the top.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until edges are lightly golden.
Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Add in the egg and vanilla.
What makes a cookie chewy?
High moisture content is the main thing that makes cookies soft and chewy. Baking time and temperature can also be adjusted to help the cookies retain the moisture. You could add a little less flour to your dough or my favorite tip is to pull the cookies out of the oven a little early and let them finish baking on the tray. This way the cookies don’t get over-cooked in the oven.
How do I bake the perfect cookie?
I think the perfect cookies come from baking them at 350 degrees for around 9 or 10 minutes and pulling them out of the oven before they turn brown on the edges. You want the center a little soft so that the cookies can finish baking on the cookie sheet and not in the oven.
Can I freeze white chocolate chip cookies?
YES! I love holiday cookies because they are so easy to freeze! You can either freeze the balls of dough BEFORE you bake them so that you can still get them fresh from the oven, or you can freeze the cookies after they have been baked. Cookies make a great freezer-friendly dessert recipe!
How do you keep white chocolate chip cookies soft?
Keep your cookies soft by storing them in an airtight container or zippered bag. If you need to layer these cookies for a gift or if you are sending them in the mail, place a layer of plastic wrap between the two layers of cookies.
If you are planning on giving cookies away at a cookie exchange, at the office, or to your neighbors, wrap them up in some cute packaging and be sure to finish it off with a cute bow! Here are some Cheap Christmas Treat bags and Boxes!
