Soft and chewy White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies are a must-have for your Christmas cookie recipe collection.  Nothing beats these cookies filled with white chocolate chips and dried cranberries.  Cranberries are a popular item this time of year, and combining them with white chocolate is a winning combination.

The first thing to note about White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies is that they are SO good! These little milk bottles are so cute and fun to use with these paper straws

Everyone who was lucky enough to sample these raved about them.  The last time I made these, I made a double batch so I could stick some in the freezer.  They have become a FAVORITE! ♥

These White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies will live up to your expectations. They are an excellent choice for your holiday parties and celebrations and a great choice for a Chrismas cookie exchange.  Holiday cookie is written all over them, but I’m thinking you could swap the dried cranberries with dried cherries for a year-round version.  Unless, of course, you don’t mind eating cranberries in June. ;)

Here are some of my favorites:

    I’m up way too late right now, and these are making me SO hungry! I can almost taste the white choco and cranberries! It’s one of my favorite combos of flavor. (Also, I love the way you placed the milk in the photos along with that super cute straw!)

    1. Thanks, Crissy! White chocolate & cranberries really are a great combo. I hope to get some of these made soon. P.S. I love staging photos. It’s all part of the fun! ;)

  2. The look gorgeous and delicious! I love the sweet touch, serving them up with a glass of milk in those old-fashioned glass jars. I might have to get some of those myself. Pinning!

    Made this recipe today and oh yum! So tasty, and I love how there is just a bit of crunch on the outside, but soft on the inside. The texture is just right. Good thing I doubled the recipe!!
