Today I’m joining a group of my close blog friends for a Christmas Cookie Exchange. Nothing like a great new cookie recipe to share with family and friends this holiday season!
If you’re popping over from my friend Courtney’s blog A Thoughtful Place hello and welcome! So happy to have you here! If you’re an old friend, thank you for coming back! Isn’t this time of year the best?! I love all the yummy home-made baked goodies.
As the season gets closer to Christmas, we decorate our homes (you can see mine HERE), gather with close friends, and enjoy the wonderful scent of fresh baked cookies filling our kitchens. I love this time and the way that it nourishes my soul.
It’s that nourishing of the soul, that inspired me to share my own Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe – it is the hubs favorite cookie and it’s perfect really any time of the year! It’s got that sweet white chocolate taste with a bit of extra cranberry chewiness – a winning combination in my book!
But the best part… is when you pair your cookies with a steaming cup of hot chocolate and marshmallows or a cool, refreshing, tall glass of milk.
Then on Christmas Eve, you can leave Santa a few cranberry white chocolate chip cookies and milk – I bet you might get a few extra packages under the tree! Haha
If you’re looking for the perfect cookie for the holidays, these cranberry white chocolate chip cookies are it!
