I love anything cranberry, especially around the holidays. I’ve made delicious cranberry lime mojitos, cranberry bliss bars (recipe coming soon!), and cranberry almond raisin biscotti crisps. This was my first time creating a cranberry cookie… and it’s dangerously good… like I’m not going to fit into my real pants kind of good.
I recently visited a cranberry bog for the very first time. I actually got to go IN the bog!!! It was a dream come true!
When I got home, I was inspired to create more cranberry dishes and desserts. This Cranberry Orange White Chocolate Cookie recipe is easy, delicious, and quick. You seriously need to try it.
Cranberry Orange White Chocolate Cookies
I used only brown sugar in this recipe because I wanted a softer, chewier, moister texture. That is exactly what happened. I LOVE the way they came out.
If you prefer more white chocolate chips, please feel free to add more. I have always liked less chocolate chips in my cookies. As a kid, I would eat around the chocolate chips... I was a weird kid...
The richness of the white chocolate compliments the tartness of the dried cranberries though. They taste FANTASTIC together, so I joyfully eat the chocolate chips in these cookies.
*makes about a dozen cookies
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup melted butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon orange extract
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup dried cranberries
How to Make Cranberry Orange White Chocolate Cookies
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and brown sugar. Add in the eggs and orange extract. Beat well.
- Mix in the flour and baking soda.
- Add the cranberries and white chocolate chips. Stir well.
- Drop balls of the dough on a cookie sheet. I just roll the balls with my hands. Other people prefer using a teaspoon or an ice cream scoop to get the perfect rounded dough.
- Bake for 9-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
Cookie Baking Essentials
Here are some tools to make baking your treats easier. I only recommend products that I use and LOVE. Happy Baking!!!
Mixing Bowls - These Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls with Airtight Lids by REGILLER are AWESOME. They include different sizes and different color lids, which make them perfect for storing food as well as mixing batter. I love multi-purpose items. Each bowl has measurement lines inside. AND has a non-slip silicone bottom, so your bowl won't fly away while mixing.... It happens...
Spatulas - I used to only use regular Tablespoons to mix and gather. Then, I tried a spatula. It makes things so much easier! No more wasted batter! I like this High Heat-Resistant Premium Silicone Spatula Set. It's BPA-Free, Nonstick, AND includes four different shapes for various gathering needs.
Baking Sheets & Cooling Racks - This TeamFar Baking Sheet with Rack Set includes 3 Cookie Sheet Baking Pans AND 3 Cooling Racks. All are made of high quality stainless steel (no aluminum). They’re healthy and durable for everyday use. You can cook with the cooling racks ON the baking sheets. This allows any grease to flow down and away from the food for a less greasy dish. It works GREAT with bacon! The sheets and racks are different sizes. The smallest can easily fit in a toaster oven.
More Baking Essentials
Parchment Paper - Parchment paper makes baking so much easier, especially cookie cutting. I LOVE Reynolds Kitchens Pop-Up Parchment Paper Sheets. They are pre-cut, which is perfect if you're a messy baker like me. I don't have to wrestle to rip the correct size of parchment paper from the roll with my batter, egg, or dye covered hands. These sheets allow me to just grab one that is already the PERFECT size. You can also save over $2 by buying them on Amazon!
Measuring Cups & Spoons — I prefer different color cups and spoons, so I can quickly identify which one I need (after awhile, you naturally memorize which amount is which color). This 12 Piece Measuring Cups and Spoons Set by U-Taste is rust-resistant, sturdy, and dishwasher-safe. It includes 12 different sizes, including 2/3 cup and 3/4 cup.
