Breads & Desserts


1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups dried cranberries
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)


Preheat oven to 325 F. Lightly grease or line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla, blending well. Slowly add flour, baking soda and salt to creamed mixture, mixing to combine. Stir in cranberries, chocolate chips and nuts, if desired. Drop balls of dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake cookies until golden brown around the edges and just set on top, about 12 minutes for small cookies. Remove to rack to cool. Yield: 3 dozen
