This holiday season I have been baking up a storm and when I made a bunch of my one favourite holiday cookies, these cranberry white chocolate chip cookies, I could not help but take some photos to update the recipe with! These cookies are a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe with the fabulous combo of white chocolate and cranberries which is perfect for the festive season! (Or any other day of the year!) I like to play around with the basic recipe and most recently when I made three batches of them, I did one with the basic recipe, as seen below, one with the addition of pistachios and one with the addition of macadamia nuts! These cranberry white chocolate chip cookies are super easy to make and a great addition to any holiday cookie platter and I have it on good authority that they welcome on Santa’s cookie plate on the night before Christmas!
