With a love of Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bars it was only a matter of time before that inspiration carried over to another treat.

White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

After eating these by the handful I decided it was best to freeze them and keep them out of my sight.  You know they say out of sight out of mind.  Sadly, that doesn’t always work.  So now I have started a whole new method to keep from eating them all.

I give them away.  So, if you are a friend or a neighbor you may just be getting a delivery soon.  Get the recipe, make the cookies.  They take a mere 30 minutes from prep to plate.


With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.

Donna’s Notes

This dough freezes perfectly. Just scoop onto a cookie sheet and flash freeze the dough for a few hours. Then place frozen scoops into a freezer bag and remove and bake as desired. Recommended to freeze up to 8 weeks.
Baked cookies can be stored in the freezer for up to 6 months. Store in a resealable freezer bag.

    Such an amazing holiday cookie! Sometimes I like to swap out the white chocolate for macadamia nut. These are amazing and so versatile.
