White Chocolate, Cranberry, and Pecan Cookies

Hey There,

I wanted to share with y’all a yummy recipe I made over the Thanksgiving Holidays.  It’s suppose to have Macadamia Nuts instead of pecan’s but those little guys are so expensive.  So I just used pecans instead because I had them on hand.


What you will need:

3 cups of all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temp.

1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar ( I just used light brown sugar)

3/4 cup sugar

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups dried cranberries (about 6 ounces)

1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips (about 8 1/2 ounces)

1 cup coarsely chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.  Mix together first three ingredients into medium bowl.  Using an electric mixer, beat butter in large bowl until fluffy.  Add both sugars and beat until blended.  Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, then vanilla.  Add dry ingredients and beat just until blended.  Using a spatula, stir in cranberries, white chocolate chips, and nuts. 

Bake cookies about 18 minutes for large cookies and about 15 minutes for small cookies. 


These are yummo and I highly recommend them.  I ate an absurd amount.

I am going to be honest and say that having my Mom’s Kitchen Aid stand mixer made making these cookies a whole lot easier.  I don’t recommend making this recipe if you don’t have a mixer of any kind.  That being a stand mixer or a hand mixer.  Getting that butter fluffy was a lot of work but it was worth it!

Hope you have a great Thursday!
