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.
