Cookie Time!

Hi all! I don't know about you, but I do most of my baking during the month of December! I love making Christmas cookies and sharing them with family and friends (and, unfortunately, my hips) and always enjoy trying new recipes. Of course, I have my old favorites, but it never hurts to try new things, right? I've heard that learning new things makes wrinkles in your brain. Apparently wrinkles in brains are a good thing. Maybe I can get my brain to take some of my face's lines LOL!

This recipe came from Food Network and sounds yummy! I love chocolate. I love cranberries. Let's put them together and bake some goodies!


White chocolate, walnut, cranberry cookie
1 cup (250 mL) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup (185 mL) granulated sugar
3/4 cup (185 mL) dark brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
2-1/4 cup (685 mL) all-purpose flour
1 tsp (5 mL) baking soda
1 cup (250 mL) each chopped: walnuts, dried cranberries, white chocolate
In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
In another bowl, combine flour and baking soda. Beat into sugar mixture, in several batches. Using wooden spoon, stir in walnuts, cranberries and chocolate.
Scoop dough by tablespoon onto parchment-lined baking sheet, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart. Flatten with fork or palms into disks. Bake in preheated 350F (180C) oven for 8 to 10 minutes.
Cool 5 minutes on baking sheets. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Store in airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week or freeze up to 1 month.
Makes about 60 cookies
