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
makes about 5 dozen cookies
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! ;)
