It's back to reality now though and I'm already back in the kitchen, baking some cookies to take to school tomorrow for something called "Holiday House" (we just bring food, leave it in the auditorium, and everyone snacks). I decided to use one of my ver favorite recipes which combine cranberries, orange, and white chocolate. Ohhhhh yes.
Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbs. Brandy (I sub 1/2 tbs orange extract)
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup white chocolate chip cookies
1 cup dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl cream together butter and both sugars until smooth.
Beat in the eggs and Brandy followed by the flour and baking soda.
Mix in cranberries and white chocolate chips.
Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheets.
Bake 8-10 minutes.
For best results remove from oven while still a bit doughy.
Allow cookies to cool on cookies sheets one minute before removing to wire racks.
Don't they look yummy???
