White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies ~ Soft, chewy cookies full of white chocolate chips and dried cranberries!Holy cow it’s cold out. Seriously like freezing, don’t want to get out of bed let alone go hit the gym, get ready for work and take Miss K to daycare. I know I know I whine about the weather every. single. winter. And I still live in MN. Why? I blame it on my family. If they’d leave I’d be right behind them, possibly even leading the pack!

Anyone else having the January blues with me?

If you are I have a yummy treat to share with you today. These cookies are fabulous. As in my hubby begging me to make this in every possible flavor he can think of because they are just perfect he tells me. I’d have to agree. I just might oblige him in this request because then I get to make more cookies. And of course eat them. Win Win!

This recipe comes from Sally over at Sally’s Baking Addiction and her sweet recipes pretty much rock my world and she’s a fun gal. I highly recommend swinging over there and checking her out!

    I’m so glad that you tried my cookies. I love this recipe! Perfect for the cookie jar this time of year. Thank you for all the kind words about my blog and I!

    • Julie Evink

      Your recipes are always fabulous! Thanks Sally!

  • Marisa

    Hello. Is it possible to freeze the dough and then defrost and bake in a couple of days. Will they turn out fine as well?
    Great recipe anyway!

    • Julie Evink

      I haven’t actually tried this so I can’t guarantee anything although I can’t for see any problems with doing it! If they will turn out as well, I don’t find that anything frozen is ever as good as it is fresh!

        Thank you ! I can’t wait to try them!
