Enough With The Dried Cranberries


I realize as I post this entry that this is the third recipe in a month or so that I have used dried cranberries.  Well, I got such a deal on them and they have to be used up and they're so good!  Continuing with my holiday baking theme,  I chose to make white chocolate chip/dried cranberry cookies.  I used the original Nestle Toll House chocolate chip recipe but replaced the chocolate chips with white chocolate chips and cranberries.  "Yum" as my friend Patti always likes to say. 


I promise, this is the last recipe I will make with dried cranberries for a long time to come!

White Chocolate Chip/Dried Cranberry Cookies

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 sticks butter, softened to room temperature
3/4 cup white granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs, at room temperature
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.  Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Gradually beat in flour mixture.  Stir chocolate and cranberries by hand.  Drop by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheets.

Bake in oven for 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.  Let stand for 2 minutes on sheets and then place on wire racks to cool completely.

Yum, is right! :>)
Is it dried cranberries fault they're good in so many things? I think I've used them in 3 different recipes in the past 2 weeks.

There is no need to apologize. I use dried cranberries year round, and I'm always happy for new ideas. I make a wickedly good homemade granola (on my blog) with dried cranberries. These cookies look amazing-- one of my other faves is white chocolate.
