White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Pecan Cookies


These white chocolate chip cranberry pecan cookies are a good alternative to regular chocolate chip cookies, and they work especially well for the upcoming holiday gift-giving (if they last that long!). The white chocolate and red craisins also work well for a Valentine’s Day treat.

White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Pecan Cookies

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoons vanilla
1 cup dried cranberries (Craisins)
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Cream butter and sugars until fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the cream mixture and stir until almost incorporated. Add the Craisins, white chocolate, and pecans. Mix until everything is just together.

Roll into heaping spoonfuls and bake at 350 degrees. Bake for 11-15 minutes.
