White Chocolate Macadamia Cranberry Dreams

  • A dream of a cookie!

It's just two weeks until Christmas 2016 and I'm actually ahead of myself this year.  No, I can't explain it...just being very thankful.   I've already made several of the family's favorite cookies.  So, "yay for me!"  Haha!

Sometimes the "hundreds" of cookie recipes in my file just aren't enough, so I search for something new to add.  I'm so glad I found this yummy recipe on "All Recipes", it's practically perfect. They're soft, buttery and delicious!

I made them with the small cookie scoop and they're just right for the cookie tray, but if I were just making these, I'd make them regular size and bake them 12-14 minutes.  I'm thinking this way because I'm sure I don't want to wait until next Christmas to make these again.  


3 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt

  1. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

1 cup softened butter (DO NOT USE SHORTENING)
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs (slightly beaten)
1 tsp. vanilla

      Cream together butter and sugars; add slightly beaten eggs and vanilla.  Mix well.

1 cup white chocolate baking chips
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
1 cup dried cranberries

      Blend in white chocolate baking chips, chopped macadamia nuts and dried cranberries.
      Add flour mixture and blend until just mixed.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 

Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheet by small scoop or rounded teaspoon. 

Bake for 10 minutes or just until not over-bake.

Remove from oven and let cool.  Cookies will sink slightly.

"So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.  He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child."   -Luke 2:4-5
