White Chocolate Cranberry Chunkies

These cookies were a big hit at work, so I thought I'd share the recipe with you.

  • 1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (Like Ocean Spray's sweetened, dried cranberries)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, with electric mixer, cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Set aside. Sift together flour, soda and salt. Add milk then add flour, soda, and salt to butter mixture. In another bowl, combine nuts, cranberries, and white chocolate. Then add to mixture, stirring only to blend. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake for approximately 11-13 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Yield: 4 dozen large cookies.
