White Chocolate Cranberry Macadamia Nut Cookies

This is a recipe I typically associate with the holidays because of the cranberry. But, it certainly is delicious no matter what month it is. You can almost never go wrong with fresh baked cookies.

A note before making these: there is a one hour chill time before baking, so make sure to plan ahead.

  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup craisins

Instructions
 

Directions:

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wed ingredients and mix just until combined.

  • Use a medium cookie scoop to portion out the dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet, it’s okay if they are close together, then place them in the freezer to chill for 1 hour.

  • Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
