I make a basic chocolate chip cookie dough, but use white chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and brandy (instead of vanilla). Great for Christmas time!

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon brandy
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. 2 In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and brandy. Combine the flour and baking soda; stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in the white chocolate chips and cranberries. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.
  3. 3 Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. For best results, take them out while they are still doughy. Allow cookies to cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

  1. I have made this recipe for 3 years now and everyone loves them. I've always used vanilla extract instead of the brandy and have used 3/4 a cup of cranberries when I didn't have a cup and they still were delicious and looked nice. I look forward to making them again for this years office - Read more ...
  2. One of my favorite cookies! Only a few alterations and comments: You must use brandy or other alternative (Capt Morgan would be good too, as one reviewer suggested). It makes it special. I always double to recipe and decrease the amount of sugar to 3/4 cup of both white and brown sugars. I also use - Read more ...
  3. I formatted this recipe for cookies in a jar for Christmas. They looked so pretty being that 2 of the ingred. were red and white. I layered the jar as follows: 1/2 c. brown sugar (well packed & pressed down into the jar), 1/2 c. sugar, 1-1/2 c. flour, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 3/4 c. - Read more ...
  4. Wonderful Christmas cookies with just a few modifications. Since I hate it when cookies spread too thin (I feeled like I've failed somehow), I used 1/2 butter, 1/2 shortening - still delicious! Used just a little less sugar - 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar and added 1/2 cup of chopped pecans and - Read more ...
  5. These cookies taste great!! Not too sweet, but not bland at all. The white chocolate gave it sweetness but not too much. I did make the following changes though: (1)Added 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white (2)I rolled the dough into balls and flattened them a bit before baking, if you don't flatten - Read more ...
  6. These are a yummy treat which we all loved. I used vanilla instead of brandy and added 1/2 cup of chopped pecans. I also doubled the recipe as others had suggested and I'm very glad I did. These will have to be hidden if I want to keep them until Christmas!
  7. I bought some fresh cranberries on sale before thanksgiving. I didn't want to make cranberry sauce (boring) and I found this recipe. It calls for dried cranberries, I used the fresh, I rinsed them and put them in a glass dish on 250 degrees for 5-10 mins to soften them up. Then I folded them - Read more ...
  8. These were delicious!!!! Loved at both work and home. I had a hard time keeping away from them. The recipe doesn't make too many so I'd advise at least doubling or tripling the recipe. Also I found that they held together better by pressing into balls before putting them on the cookie sheet. Simply doing - Read more ...
  9. What can I say? I've now found a family tradition that I will make for Thanksgiving and Christmas forever! This recipe is delicious. Like others, I used vanilla extract instead of the brandy and the cookies are heavenly. My whole family and my whole extended family couldn't get enough of these cookies. I was so - Read more ...
