Who doesn’t need a little fall dessert in their lives? I was racking my brain trying to come up with a festive dessert to share with y’all and was really struggling so I decided to make up my own… This had potential to be a disaster but fortunately the outcome was delicious and they might be one of my new favorite cookies! I started with your basic white chocolate chip cookie recipe and got a little inventive by adding pecans and dried cranberries. (Pumpkin seemed a little too cliché, if you know what I mean.)
White Chocolate, Cranberry, Pecan Cookies
:: 1/2 cup butter, softened
:: 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
:: 1/2 cup white sugar
:: 1 egg
:: 1 tablespoon vanilla
:: 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
:: 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
:: 1 cup white chocolate chips
:: 1 cup dried cranberries
:: 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Step 1 | Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease cookie sheets. In a large bowl, mix together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
Step 2 | In a small bowl mix together flour and baking soda. Slowly add flour mixture to your sugar mixture. Once your dough is well blended stir in your chocolate chips, cranberries, and pecans. Drop by spoonfuls onto your prepared cookie sheets.
Step 3 | Bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool for 1-2 minutes before transferring them to wire racks. Once they are completely cool, you’re free to enjoy!
Making a batch of these is a decision you won’t regret! Trust me.
