These cookies are soft and chewy and we really enjoyed the addition of cranberries and white chocolate. We skipped adding nuts to this batch but walnuts, pecans, almonds or macadamias could easily be added to round out this cookie but it is perfectly good just like it is as well.This recipe is easily doubled and is also able to be frozen for later use. I use a 1 oz cookie scoop to scoop out the dough which I then put onto a cookie sheet and freeze. Alternatively, if you don’t have a cookie scoop, form rounds using a tablespoon and freeze as directed. Later, I transfer the frozen dough to zip top bags for ease of use and storage. When baking, allow and extra 2 to 3 minutes to allow for the frozen cookie dough.
I baked a small batch of these of today (pictured above) and the cookies were perfectly golden brown, chewy and delicious after just 15 minutes in the oven. Enjoy!
