Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Perfect for the holidays, this cookie recipe was a breeze to make and turned out super tasty! I found the recipe on Casual. Concoctions' blog HERE, who found her recipe on the Cookies on Friday blog.I didn't have any lemon zest so I added a splash of lemonade.. yes, I know this is nowhere near the same but I thought I'd try it.. It was just fine but I think even a splash was enough to thin out the cookies more then I would have liked. I also sprayed some Pam on the cookie sheet for the first batch and those came out more crumbly then the other 2 batches.. everything else was the same. So, I'd recommend not doing either of those things ;)

The cookies are absolutely delicious but I do find them to be a little too sweet. I would recommend putting in only one cup of white chocolate chips.

Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Add the flour mixture and then fold in cranberries and white chocolate chips.

Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the cookie sheets.
