Coffee Bean's White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies


From: lacelebutard.blogspot.com
What better than a nice hot cup of coffee, preferably a Vanilla Latte from my favorite coffee shop, The Coffee Bean. What better accompanies this warm deliciousness than a cookie. My favorite is the White Chocolate and Cranberry. Here is my knock-off recipe to make there delicious cookies. 


Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon Vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup of white chocolate chips
1 cup of dried cranberries
1/2 cup of sugar for rolling


1. Preheat oven to 375*F. Grease cookie sheets.


2. In a large bowl or mixer, cream the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla. 
3.Combine the flour and baking soda; stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in a white chocolate chips and cranberries. 


4. Make small 1 inch balls of cookie dough and roll in sugar then place on greased cookie sheets. 


5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven or until golden brown. Allow to cool on sheets before placing on wire racks to completely cool. 


Let me know if you liked the recipe? Did you do a different variation? What coffee drink do you like to accompany your cookies? I would love to hear from you!!
