We put together these recipes to not only give you a little inspiration, but also help spread the holiday spirit. Today's recipe is for delectable Cranberry-White Chocolate Cookies. If you don't like white chocolate, you can substitute semi-sweet chocolate chips for the white chocolate.


Cranberry-White Chocolate Cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats (quick-cooking or old-fashioned)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 ½ cups unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
¾ cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat the oven to 325 and prepare two baking sheets, lining them with parchment paper.

Mix the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside. Beat together the butter and both sugars until creamy. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla, and beat well until combine. Add the dry ingredients one cup at a time, beating thoroughly until combined. Fold in the white chocolate, cranberries, and walnuts (if using).

Roll teaspoon-sized balls of dough and drop them onto the baking sheet two inches apart. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, and then let cool completely.
