Cranberry and White Chocolate Cookies

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

I want Bigger Bolder Baking to be your go-to destination for recipes this holiday season. So I added LOADS of new festive cookie recipes, including this gem, for Cranberry and White Chocolate Cookies, to my Holiday Baking Headquarters page.

You will love the taste of this classic combination of cranberry and white chocolate. What could be more seasonal than lovely sweet and tart, bright red dried cranberries? Your kitchen will smell like heaven, and paired with smooth, sweet, white chocolate and the softest most chewy cookie dough to date, my Cranberry and White Chocolate Cookie is a new classic.

I know we all love a bakery style chocolate chip cookie and this one really raises the bar. These bright flavors are game changing and the texture of this cookie is like nothing else. Made with a combination of rich brown sugar, white sugar, just one egg and lots of butter, this cookie has all the chew you love. My Cranberry and White Chocolate Cookies remain doughy and thick even after baking, which is pretty special if you ask me.

This year, instead of going to the store to buy your usual cookies, bake my super star cookies instead. You can make my cookie dough well in advance, it will happily sit in the fridge overnight.  You can then bake them off at your leisure. Better yet, I love to freeze some of this dough, so anytime I need a chewy Cranberry and White Chocolate Chip Cookie it is truly just 10 minutes away!

    Hi, Gemma. These look delicious. I have a Q about a recipe I’ve just made – almond biscuits (in the British sense) using creaming method then adding egg, flour and ground almonds. Can I freeze the dough? Also, how long can I keep the dough in the fridge? Thanks for advice.

      Hi Sally,
      I frequently freeze cookie dough, and when I worked in restaurant kitchens we almost always made big batches, rolled into sausage portions, wrapped in cling wrap,so that they could be removed, sliced and baked fresh.
      I have not done this with this particular recipe, but I cannot see a good reason not to do it.
      I hope it helps, you can show us the results!
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma, Do you think I could use fresh cooked cranberries in the white choc.cranberry cookies,and if so would I boil then bake the cranberries
    Thank You,

      Hi Maureen,
      I think you would need to dry the cranberries. Dried cranberries are very useful, for all sorts of things, really adding a great pop of flavor to cookies, granola, Greek yogurt etc.
      You will need to pop them, then dry them in the oven. The Spruce have a great article on their website about this, do take a look (https://www.thespruce.com/how-to-dry-cranberries-in-oven-1327534), this is what I would do, then you can have them for months too, great idea, thank you for reminding me,
      Gemma 🙂
