Foodie Friday: Cranberry Chip Cookies

Christmas is coming in just a few days! Are you planning to bake some Christmas cookies this weekend? In case you get a hankering for easy homebaked goodies, here’s a simple recipe that pairs the complimentary flavors and textures of dried fruit and white chocolate chips.

This is an excellent recipe for any time of year – at Christmas, I prefer red cranberries and white chips. For Memorial Day or the Fourth of July, just use dried blueberries and cranberries for a red, white, and blue cookie. The rest of the year, choose from dried cherries, cranberries, or blueberries.

Cranberry Chip Cookies

Ingredients

Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chips and fruit with a spoon. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for eight to ten minutes.
