White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

Sorry my wonderful followers…we have sorta put this blog on hold for a bit… I will try to start posting again more often. For today I have one of my favorite cookie recipes….

White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies



1/2 cup shortening or unsalted butter softened
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup dried cranberries, chopped
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped ( optional )


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

With an electric mixer, cream the shortening or butter and both sugars together until smooth. Add the vanilla and egg, mixing well. Sift together the flour and baking soda. Spoon the flour mixture gradually into the creamed sugar mixture. Stir in the cranberries, white chocolate chips and if using also add macadamia nuts. Drop by heaping spoonfuls, about 2 tablespoons, onto the prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake one sheet at a time until lightly golden on top and the edges are set, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on the sheet about 5 minutes, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
