Recipe: Double Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

I have a thing for berries and chocolate. This time of year I get excited since you can get fresh cranberries and not only are they beautiful I love cooking and baking with them. One of my favorite recipes is a simple Double Chocolate Chip Cranberry cookie. It just screams Christmas to me. I shared this recipe before (you know when barely anyone read my blog) so I thought I’d repost it since it really is one of my favorite recipes.

Double Chocolate Cranberry Recipe

  • 1 C butter softened
  • 3/4 C sugar
  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 C flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 C milk chocolate chips
  • 1 C white chocolate chips (or vanilla melts chopped)
  • 1 C fresh cranberries (or 1/2 C dried)

Cream butter and sugar. Add the flour and baking soda. Mix in eggs and vanilla. After those are well combined add the chocolate and cranberries. Bake at 375 F 10 to 12 minutes.

Makes about 5 dozen. I’ve also used this recipe as a really yummy tweakable base. I’ve substituted the berries and chips for fun alternatives. They aren’t necessarily the prettiest but every time I bake up a batch I get compliments on their tastiness. Enjoy!

  12. Marissa, you’re right- these do scream “Christmas!” They are also screaming my name, lol! Question- when you use fresh cranberries, do you chop them up, or just throw them in whole? They sort of looked chopped, but I can’t really tell. Thanks! Pinned!
