Chunky White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

Bite Me More began with this recipe after I bought a cranberry and white chocolate cookie from a local bakery three years ago. I ate it, bought a dozen more, drove directly to Lisa’s house, and thrust the package at her. “Make these,” I insisted. She sniffed them, did her little rabbit nibbles, closed her eyes, inhaled, and said, “No prob.” She made them. And then she created an irresistible cookie that far surpassed any we have ever eaten.


½ cup butter, softened
½ cup sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1½ cups flour
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp kosher salt
1½ cups white chocolate, cut into chunks
1 cup dried cranberries or dried cherries


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In an electric mixer, cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar together on medium speed. Add the egg and vanilla, beating until fluffy.

3. On low speed, add the flour, baking soda, salt, white chocolate, and cranberries, mixing just until the flour disappears. Do not overmix.

4. Drop heaping tablespoons of batter onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, just until the edges begin to brown. Cool cookies on a wire rack.

Yield: 16 large cookies
