Alice’s Cranberry & White Chocolate Chip Cookies, from Heather

Three White Chocolate Chip and Cranberry cookies on a green plate.
Three will not be enough. Trust me!

This recipe comes from Alice, my fella’s mother via Heather, his sister. They’re my favorite cookie and being a family recipe makes them extra special!

1 c butter
½ c brown sugar, lightly packed
¼ c white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1½ cups flour
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
¼ cup boiling water
2 cups rolled oats
1 c dried cranberries
1 c white chocolate chips

In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars until creamy. Mix in vanilla just until combined.

Stir together flour and salt in another bowl then add to wet ingredients and mix well.

Dissolve baking soda in boiling water, add to butter and flour mixture and mix well.

Stir in rolled oats, cranberries and white chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonful (for small cookies) or tablespoonful (for large cookies) 2 inches apart on baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silpat.

Bake at 350°; 7-10 min for small cookies and 10-15 for large cookies (you’ll want them just a little underdone in the center). Rest on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack. Try not to devour the whole batch before anyone else gets a taste… 😉
