White Chocolate - Cranberry Cookies

serves: Makes approximately 54 cookies

ingredients
2- ¼ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¾ cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup light brown sugar
2 sticks butter, unsalted, softened
2 large eggs
1- 12 ounce package white chocolate chips
3 cups fresh cranberries, roughly chopped

directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F.


In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Gently stir ingredients together.


In a separate large mixing bowl, beat the white and brown sugars together with the butter until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, and be sure to beat well after each addition.


With your mixer on the lowest speed, begin to add the flour gradually, in increments, and be sure to mix until very well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and cranberries.


Lightly grease a sheet pan with softened butter. Spoon the dough into generous tablespoon-sized balls and place on the baking sheet. Be sure to leave a few inches of space between each ball, as they will spread out while baking. Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until golden brown.


Remove the cookies for the baking sheet and allow them to cool on a wire rack.


For storage: Place in a tightly-sealed container and store in a cool, dry place.
