The 20 Days of Holiday Treats: Day 6 White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

Happy 10th day of December! The malls are getting crazy with present-shoppers! We just finished putting up our tree and it is gorgeous!

Today’s treat is Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies, a festive take on a classic chocolate chip cookie.

The base is very easy, cream butter and sugars together than add white chocolate and dried cranberries!

A little bit of cornstarch is added to make the cookies more tender.

These are crisp on the outside and melt-in-your-mouth chewy on the inside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silpat.

In a mixer, blend together the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.

Whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl then add to the butter mixture.

Happy Holidays!
