Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies

IMG_2629
Yesterday I experienced something I haven't experienced since I was a senior in high school. I was stung...bitten...whatever...by a yellow jacket. That little bugger flew up my pant leg somehow and got me right on the ankle bone. I remember they used to get me all the time when I swam in my best friend's pool in the summertime. OUCH! Thank goodness for baking soda...and cookies! Cookies make everything better. Right?!

This is one of my most favorite cookies. I make these at work and they are a huge hit with campers...and staff. These cookies are also fantastic in bar form!

Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies
by theUngourmet

makes about 5 dozen cookies

Print recipe

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups dried cranberries
2 cups white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In an electric mixer, using the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugars until creamy. Add the vanilla and eggs. Gradually add the flour mixture. Add the cranberry and chips.

Scoop tablespoon sized portions onto a baking sheet (spaced about 1" apart) and bake for 9-11 minutes until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

Hope you all had a fabulous week. Remember to steer clear of those darn bees! ;)

Happy Weekend!

I've been stung twice and it really stinks. What does the baking soda do?

What a great combination and they look delicious! The cookies will surely help the pain!

Joanne- You can make a paste with baking soda and water and apply it to the sting and it helps with pain and supposedly helps to pull the poison out. :)

Velva said...

Yes! Cookies do make everything right-especially these type of cookies. Love it.

Yikes about he sting. The wasp probably knew you had cookies and were not planning to share with him (smile).

Happy Sunday to you.

This cookie has become a new Christmas classic in our family . . . sorry about the sting. I would have taken a Benadryl(or two) and been on the couch for a few hours! (And hoping for a cookie when I woke up.)

This is one of our favorite cookies too. Sorry about getting stung. It's amazing our something so little can cause so much pain.

Kim said...

Yikes - Sorry to hear about the bee sting. Cookies are definitely a great way to ease the pain though. I've been wanting to try a version of this and when I do I think I'll try it in the bar version like you mentioned. They look great!

Monica said...

These cinnamon scented lovelies do indeed make bad things go away. Sorry about the sting - they can be sneaky little bees.

Hi Kim - Sorry about your bee sting. I hate those darn yellow jackets. I haven't seen many of them this year. They used to plague us at the market. Hope all is well with you. Cookies make most things better. At least temporarily anyway.

The Blonde Duck said...

They'd make me feel better! I hate those things!

Pam said...

Great looking cookies, Kim!

Check out my post for Oct. 3, you'll love it!!!

Darn yellow jackets! I hope you are feeling better.

The cookies look great. They would make anyone feel better!

I love the idea of these in bar form! I might try these with dried cherries, too! I love those!

Why is it that yellow jackets just adore chlorine soaked children? We used to run from the bees when we were little, too!

Angie's Recipes said...

Love the combination! Those cookies look so good.

Wow cranberries and white chocolate sound like a perfect combo for cookies! I love the tart aspect mixed with the creamy sweet of the chocolate. Definitely must make. Sorry about your sting!
