This is a great Christmas cookie!


1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. packed brown sugar
3/4 c. white sugar
1 egg
1 T. vanilla or almond extract
3/4 c. white chocolate chips
1 c. dried cranberries
1/2 c. chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets. 

Editor's Note: We baked one dozen with parchment paper and the rest with a greased baking sheet. All the cookies came out the same size and height, and, crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside.

cup of flour leveled

In small bowl, combine flour and baking soda.

Add egg and vanilla (or almond) extract. 

Editor's Note: We chose almond extract, perfect for these holiday cookies!

Slowly stir the flour mixture into the sugar mixture. 

glass bowls of white chocolate chips, dried cranberries, pecans

Mix in chips, cranberries and nuts. 

prepared cookie dough in bowl

Editor's Note: This cookie dough is so pretty, you could even freeze it in nice containers and give them out as Christmas gifts (with baking instructions). Since this recipe makes 3 dozen cookies, you could divide the dough into thirds and make 3 gifts.
