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!
