"This is a sweet cookie, but a good cookie. My friend gave me this recipe, I'm not sure where it came from originally."
Serving Size: 1 (34 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 24
"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."
"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!!"
"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."
"Very good! The brandy adds a special touch. Mine spread out more than the cookies pictured. I wonder if using butter flavored crisco would help the cookies to hold their shape? Thanks for posting!"
"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!"
"Well, these are definately going on my Christmas Cookies list this year! Everybody mentioning 'sweet' worried me a bit so I omitted the white sugar, and they were still sweet enough to my liking. Didn't have white choc chips so chopped up 75g of plain white chocolate. I used a tablespoon measure (dipped in water to keep the dough from sticking) and got 31 medium sized cookies."
"I didnt have the brandy..but they were great regardless. Thank you :)"
"Wonderful cookies :) I was looking for a good base recipe to use up some dark chocolate chips, skor toffee bits and dried cranberries. Kim127's recipes are always a winner. Liked the use of brandy. I baked on a pampered chef clay baking sheet (love it) and they took 9 1/2 to 10 minutes and 3 minutes of cooling time before removing to wire rack. Thanks Kim! This is a keeper."
"I have just tried this and slightly changed the recipe. I added less sugar and Amaretto instead of Brandy and ofcourse amonds instead of Cranberries. The cookies turned out to be crispy & chewy in the middle. Very tasty and easy to make!"
"Cranberries and white chocolate are a winning combination love this recipe. I replaced the brandy with orange juice. Mine baked up in 8 minutes and I got exactly 24 nice sized cookies I used a meduim cookie scoop. Thanks for sharing this recipe Kim these cookies are going to be made many times in the future. YUM"
"Loves these cookies!"
"I made this for *Zaar World Tour III* - I brought these to a picnic we had at the local playground. I left out the brandy because small children was going to eat them but I added one tablespoon of cranberry juice to make up the liquid. Everyone enjoyed them thank you Kim127"
"Wonderful! I used orange juice instead of brandy and also added 1/3 cup chopped pistachios. I served these with coffee for guests after dinner and they all commented favourably on the flavour - cranberries aren't all that common around here unless at Christmas with turkey."
"I make these every christmas. Great combination. I have to keep an eye on the bottoms of the cookies when baking."
"Really good cookies. However, I think next time I'll add more flour as the batter just didn't seem thick enough. They are worth making again if I can get them to bake just right"
