White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cookies are a unique variation of a traditional chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe.

In this version white chocolate chips replace conventional semi-sweet chocolate chips. And where you might add raisins to the dough, you replace them with dried cranberries (Craisins®) instead. The result is a sweet drop cookie with bite – and a pretty one, at that. The white chips and red cranberries create a colorful contrast.These cookies are a fun and festive way to enjoy cranberries during the holiday season.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 10-12 minutes
Makes about 4 dozen cookies
