White Chocolate Craisin Cookies

Gosh, it’s been SO long since i’ve shared a recipe with you!  Becky (aka tggrfriend on SCS) brought these fabulous cookies to the Arlington Stamp Day and I could not wait to make them!  I think I ate 6 that day….they were so good! I don’t usually like white chocolate, but these are wonderful!  I changed the recipe up a bit because I didn’t have exactly what she used.  So here it is!

White Chocolate Craisin Cookies

2 rolls of refrigerated sugar cookie dough (they are usually about 16 oz per tube)

2 cups white chocolate chips

1 (6 oz) bag of Ocean Spray Craisins (I used a little bit more of these – maybe 3/4 of a 12 oz bag)

**optional** 1 c pistachios, lightly choppped (I don’t do nuts so I didn’t add these)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix sugar cookie dough, white chocolate and craisins in a large mixing bowl.

Scoop spoonfuls onto cookie sheet.

Bake for 12-15 mins.

Enjoy!  These are so so good!  The craisins are just the right punch to counteract the sweetness of the white chocolate.  Man, I think I ate another 6 tonight!  I thought these would be a nice addition to the boys’ Teacher Appreciation gifts so I made up a plate for each teacher.

    These ARE delicious, arent they?!!!!! I have a similar recipe that calls for a tube of White Chunk Chocolate Macadamia nut (also made by Pillsbury). My recipe also calls for the addition of orange extract. About 1/4 tsp, or just a few drops. This is also a nice addition to the sweet/tart cranraisin flavor. I always make them at Christmas.

    I am going to make these for my mom for mothers day she loves those craisins and she loves white chocolate. Thanks for the idea. Have a great day 🙂

  • I know – weren’t those cookies just fabulous?!!! I ate several too – now I just need to whip up a batch! 🙂

  • You had to do it, didn’t you!? I was doing so good not thinking about sweets today and then I come across this yummy looking picture! I blame my weight gain on you! LOL! Totally j/k! 🙂

  • Mmmmmm. Those sound so yummy! I’ll give them a shot, too. I’m sure I will eat more than 6. I usually can’t make cookies without eating half the batch!!

    Someone at school made some cookie bars like these and she soaked the craisens in the orange extract before using them…makes them taste like those yummy orange cranberries in the Salad Pizzazz – Orange Cranberry Almondine.
