I was inspired to make these when i first ate otis spunkmeyer white chocolate and cranberry cookies at a Submarina Subs and Salads a year ago. They're irresistable! hope you enjoy them as much as i do!
- 1. Preheat oven to 375. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- 2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour and baking soda; stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in the white chocolate chips and cranberries. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.
- 3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. For best results, take them out while they are still soft, being careful not to overcook. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
These are really yummy cookies! I love white chocolate and cranberries and use the combination in everything from scones to cookies. I did have to make a little alteration to make them gluten free. I did this by subbing a gluten free flour mixture for the wheat flour and the results were very pleasing. The cookies were slightly soft in the middle with a little crunch around the edges. I used half cherry flavored cranberries and half pomegranate flavored cranberries. Both were delicious with the white chocolate. Thanks for sharing your recipe, lanemalori, we'll be making them again! Made and enjoyed for Spring 2011 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :)
Very nice cookies. The dough was quite stiff but still good to handle. I got 37 cookies and they baked for 9 minutes. The cookies are crispy with a semi-soft center. Since the recipe did not state what size spoon should be used to form the cookies I used a dessert spoon which is, at least here, something between a tablespoon and a teaspoon. The cookies spread nicely so I guess that was the right size.
The combination of dried cranberries and white chocolate is very nice albeit a tad too sweet. But that could be the chocolate chips I used.
I am very pleased I tried these. Thanks for posting.
