A simple alteration to my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe helped me to make the perfect cookies for the holidays!

Cranberry and white chocolate is one of my favorite combinations! These cookies did not disappoint. My 5 year old and her friend helped me make this recipe; measuring ingredients and pushing extra chocolate chips and cranberries (I used pomegranate flavored) into the tops of the dough balls before baking. I used really good vanilla (my homemade isn't ready for another couple of months) and am glad I did because with one Tablespoon of it, vanilla is a dominant flavor in this recipe. I used a 2-teaspoon sized cookie scoop (Oxo brand/size small) to measure the dough and we ended up with 60 cookies. My ovens cook a little hot, and that combined with smaller cookies than the recipe suggests, convinced me to reduce the bake time after the first batch got a tad crispy at 15 minutes. I liked the results best at about 13 minutes and then one minute cooling on the pan, but I'm a soft-cookie girl. :) Thanks for sharing this recipe, CollegeCulinista! Made & enjoyed for the Spring 2012 Pick-A-Chef event!
