Cranberrry White Chocolate Chip Cookies


I haven't been in writing mode for the past few weeks. Actually, I have been working rather frantically on my day-job writing, but small-batch travel has taken a backseat. We took the kids to Disneyland a couple of weekends ago, so I will post on that--but for now, here's a recipe.

Fall is here and all I want to do is bake! Baking is quiet, focused work--a moment of stillness in my noisy, kid-filled home. It's work that provides almost instant gratification and is enjoyable even in my perpetually sleep-deprived state. I made these cookies last night and they were a hit!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Use a whisk, spoon or mixer to blend these ingredients together:
1 stick salted butter
1 stick unsalted butter (both at room temperature)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated raw sugar
2 eggs

Stir in:
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. pure vanilla
1 cup dried cranberries
12 oz. white chocolate chips

Use a small scoop or tablespoon to place on cookies sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. I like these on the lighter side.
