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.
Why cranberry and white chocolate compliment each other
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.
What is the texture of cranberry and white chocolate cookies?
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 and dried cranberry ups that chew factor even more!
[If you like big bakery style cookies you’ll love my best ever chocolate chip cookies!]
Can you make cookie dough ahead of time?
This year, instead of going to the store to buy your usual cookies, bake my superstar 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!
