Delicious! White chocolate and craisins are a perfect combination in these cookies. I didn't have any brandy so I used 1 tablespoon orange juice with no problems. Thanks Kim for sharing this cookie recipe which I will be making often during the fall/Christmas season.
Very good! The brandy adds a special touch. Mine spread out more than the cookies pictured. So the next time I made them, I added an additional 1/4 cup of flour, and that took care of the spreading issue. Delicious!
Love these cookies. I used vanilla extract instead of brandy and they were wonderful! I also used a full cup of white choc chips. My husband said they were the best cookies I've ever made. Thanks for the recipe!!
As always, I lined my sheet pans with parchment paper instead of greasing. Because the recipe doesn't specify with exactly what type of "spoonful" to drop the batter, I assumed it was a teaspoon and, thusly, got a bit more than 2 dozen cookies (about 32). I substituted vanilla extract for the brandy because I didn't have any, decreased the amount of cranberries to 3/4 cup, and increased the amount of white chocolate chips to 1 1/4 cups. They baked for about 13 minutes. Delicious cookies! This recipe is a keeper.
I substituted 1T almond extract instead of using brandy. I also added 1/2 tsp salt. I bet the sugar could be cut down a bit. But I'm very happy with the results I had!
Thanks for posting a dried cranberry cookie that doesn't require oatmeal! I am home on a 'snow day' and wanted to make holiday cookies, but have no oatmeal. I did decrease sugar, but it was the brown as I didn't have enough (did 1/4 brown and 1/2 c white). I also added another egg (2 medium) as it was pretty dry dough. I mixed approx. 1/2 tsp cinnamon in, rolled into balls and didn't squoosh them at all. They are perfect for my cookie platter.
These were incredibly good! My daughter helped me make them for her Great Grandfather's birthday. I don't have Brandy on hand, but did have Bourbon and they are so good! The batter is a little thick, so we shaped and flattened them a bit and they baked for about 18 minutes.
Really great cookie recipe! I also used OJ in lieu of brandy because that's what I had. I had to cock the cookies a little longer than suggested, but they turned out lovely!
Wonderful cookies! I did cut the white sugar to 1/4 cup and next time will leave it out completely. The Craisins and white chocolate provide plenty of sweetness. I also substituted orange juice for the brandy. Definitely a cookie I'll make again!
I followed Coffee Bean's suggestion of cutting out the white sugar altogether (since I don't like very sweet cookies) and the sweetness level was just right. Used amaretto instead of brandy with great effect. My only problem was that the cookies never spread and flattened, I felt like there was too much flour and not enough liquid for it to manage it. Despite this, the cookies taste wonderful, they're just bulkier!
