Cranberry-White Chocolate Shortbread

"I've been making these cookies for a few years now and they have always been a hit! They have a very nice presentation and seem like they are much more difficult to make than they are, not to mention they are very tasty too. They are also very easy to make - I usually substitute a bag of white chocolate chips for the Baker's chocolate to make it even easier."

  1. Wonderful!!! Just finished making these as a last-minute addition to our Christmas table, and I think these will be a permanent addition to my "must-bake" list of Christmas goodies. I made these exactly as stated, using 200g (7oz?) of chopped white chocolate and a 170g (6oz) bag of sweetened dried cranberries. These are such delightfully flavoured cookies - I made some as drop style cookies and the rest as a more traditional style round. YUM! Thank you so much for posting!
  2. A perfect Christmas cookie! Started making these 2 years ago for a cookie party and they have become a fan favorite! I add a little extra sugar and chop up the craisins which made a huge difference. Enjoy!
  3. I want to make these cookies as I have been looking for a nice cranberry cookie recipe that does not involve oatmeal. I have a package of white chips - but am unsure as to how much to use I am rating 5 stars because I love shortbread and cranberries. Thanks!
  4. WOW!! Such a easy but tasty cookie. Made as recipe stated and we love them!! My DH says this is his new favorite!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I'm sure it will be made many times in our house!!
  5. Love these cookies! I, too, used the white chocolate morsels and these were quick to put together. I was a little unsure because the batter is so dry, but they molded fairly easily. The end result is a delicious shortbread that is perfect for the holidays. I'll be making these every year. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.
