White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

My sister Brooke’s friend Christine brought these White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies to our Holiday Cookie Swap. You guys all know how much I love cranberry anything (well, except cranberry juice – blech), so I’m sure you can imagine how excited I was about these. They’re soft and chewy with the perfect combination of sweetness and tartness from the white chocolate and cranberry. They just taste like the holidays to me.

    This absolutely falls under the this-is-so-easy-and-so-much-better-why-would-I-ever-go-back-to-canned-version territory! I recently made turkey burgers with cranberry sauce dressing and used the canned kind – never again!

    Wow, this sounds so easy and delicious! I’m cooking for the first time this year and can’t wait to make everything from scratch, which usually doesn’t happen when others in my family cook… 🙂

    I’m jealous, I want this. I have to eat the stuff from a can because I’m allergic to cranberries and the stuff in a can is far away enough from real that I can get away with it. My grandma used to make cranberry relish which was amazing, but also broke me out into the most amazing hives.

    I have never understood those that buy canned cranberries when they are so simple to make. Tastes way better than any can.
    Thanks for your nice and simple cranberry sauce recipe.
