Recipe From: Baking Bites – Cherry White Chocolate Chip Cookies – http://bakingbites.com/2008/12/white-chocolate-cherry-cookies/
Love these! I wish I had some on hand right now for studying, have some huge tests and quizzes next week. The combination of white chocolate and dried cherries is so good. And they are probably a little bit healthier than a chocolate chip cookie. Not a lot, and not that there is anything wrong with chocolate chip, but a little bit healthier is always good.
Cherry White Chocolate Chip Cookies:
1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup softened Unsalted Butter
3/4 Tsp Baking soda
1/4 Tsp Salt
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
*2/3 cups Dried Cherries
2/3 cups White Chocolate Chips
*I actually ran out of dried cherries because of my previous attempt to make these, but I had some dried cranberries and they worked just as well.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Take 2 cookie sheets and line them with parchment paper for easy clean up.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and the sugar untill creamy. Add in the egg and the vanilla extract. In a seperate bowl wisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt (this is sort of like sifting it). Add the flour mixture to the other mixture in small portions, stilling each portion untill combined. Once the batter is combined and looks thick and dough like, fold in the dried cranberries and white chocolate chips.
Using two spoons, scoop up little balls of dough and drop them on the cookie sheet. Place one cookie sheet on the top rack to the right side, and the other on the lower rack on the left side so they are heated pretty evently. Bake for about 10 – 12 minutes. When finished place them to cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes.
For me this made 28 cookies.
