It’s time to talk Christmas cookies and I couldn’t be more excited about this!  These White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies are a very simple recipe but have that special holiday touch added to them with the cranberries.  I didn’t think I’d be a huge fan of the white chocolate and cranberry together in a cookie but, let me tell you…this WORKS. It works well.

I’m so glad you’re here! Follow along on Pinterest for more inspiration!

Perfectly soft White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies are the perfect dessert recipe to add red and white holiday colors to your Christmas cookie trays this year!

These babies would be great for an office cookie exchange because they are easy to make and something a bit different. They are not overly sweet but also not the least bit bland.  I love the sweetness and texture that the cranberries add.

Do you give away cookies to people for the holidays?  These White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies would make great edible gifts to give away to family, neighbors and friends. Some of my other favorite “show-stopper” cookies are these Italian Ricotta Cookies, Italian Anisette “S” Cookies, and Lofthouse Frosted Cookies. Enjoy!
