Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies


·    3/4 cup butter-at room temperature  

·    3/4 cup white sugar

·    1/2 cup brown sugar

·    2 eggs

·    2 teaspoons pure Vanilla

·    2 tablespoons Cointreau

·    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

·    1 teaspoon baking soda

·    1 teaspoon Salt

·    ½ teaspoon Nutmeg

·    1 cup dried cranberries

·    2 cups white Chocolate or good quality Vanilla baking chips


In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugars. Beat in the eggs, Cointreau and vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, nutmeg, salt and baking soda. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.

Lastly add in the dried cranberries and white chocolate chips. Using a tablespoon measure out a large rounded size spoonful, and place onto a greased baking sheet.

 Then.....Lick the scraper or whisk attachment, close your eyes, then savor the moment! (Then worry about salmonella poisoning)! Eek!

Bake at 375°F for 8 minutes. Cook on pan for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Then............take a bite!


  1. Oooo, these sound great. I love anything with either white chocolate or dried cranberries so this is right up my alley!

  2. @Janet..thanks. The flavors of the Nutmeg & Orange (Cointreau) compliment the recipe!

  3. I've made these a handful of times and they are INSANELY good. Like 'where did you buy these!?!' good. I just had an itch to do them again and they are just as smashing as I remember from last year.
    Please, don't think, just make 'em. I've yet to find a soul that doesn't spout exposition after taking their first bite.
    Kudos to the author :]

  4. Matt-what a sweet comment. So glad that you loved the recipe and your even using it again.
