White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies are perfect for the holidays! These Christmas cookies are great to share with family and friends! Chewy, sweet and delicious!
I think by now you know that the white chocolate and cranberry combo is rocking my world recently. I made these crumb bars several times and still can’t get enough of them. A cake is in the making (coming up on the blog soon!) and I am sure I will come up with something else between it all.
I just can’t help it. Cranberries go perfectly with white chocolate. The sweetness of the white chocolate balances the tartness of the cranberries. Add to it the biggest cookie time of the year and these White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies had to happen.
And now I can’t get enough of them. They are too good! Crispy edges, chewy center, packed with white chocolate and cranberries. What’s not to like?
