So this happened. And I totally forgot about them. Not because they weren’t amazing but because I made so many recipes that week I just got distracted with editing those photos. I saw our white chocolate cranberry cookies sitting there on the computer and I literally can taste that chewy on the outside, soft in the middle with that creamy, white chocolate and big juicy craisins cookies!

Phew, I’d probably better get on with it before I find myself making cookies in the middle of the night. Heaven knows I don’t need that soft, delicious, buttery dough… GAH!

Why do I write when the munchies are bound to happen? It’s like grocery shopping, I need to do it on a full belly.

Soft White Chocolate Craisin Cookies

To make extra soft white chocolate craisin cookies you’re going to want to concentrate on the butter, sugar and eggs.

  1. The butter should be softened, not cold and not melted and it should be beat with the sugar for over a minute. There’s an actual scientific change that occurs when you beat butter and sugar together and that will make for an extra soft cookie.
  2. The eggs have to be large eggs and should be room temperature, not cold. This will make sure that the proper amount of egg goes into the cookie as medium and extra large eggs will change the recipe. A cold egg will also drop the temperature of the dough and change your bake on the cookies.
