Description

Soft and chewy white chocolate cranberry walnut cookies are beyond simple to prepare and make the perfect holiday treat.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F. In a small mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt, then set aside. 
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment fitted, mix together the brown sugar, sugar, and cooled, melted butter until well mixed, about 1 minute.
  3. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla, then mix for 1 minute more. Scrape down the sides, then mix again. With the mixer running on low, add the dry ingredients and mix until just incorporated.
  4. Fold in the cranberries, walnuts, and white chocolate chips. Roll out cookies into balls using about 2 tablespoons dough for each, then place 2 inches apart on a parchment or silpat-lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, rotating the tray about halfway through cook time.
  5. Let cool for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool 5 minutes further. 

Notes

If you prefer larger cookies, use 3 tablespoons instead of 2 per cookie, and let them cook 1 minute longer.
