Make It Yours™ Buttery Cranberry and White Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

This post was sponsored by Country Crock® but all ideas are my own.

As you know, I love to bake. I find it a relaxing and soothing activity, and I love the way it makes the house smell.

When my kids bake with me it gives us a great opportunity to chat, laugh and create something together. I won’t lie, I love the results, too. Sometimes I’m not even sure what ingredients I have in the house or what I plan on making.

This is why I love the Country Crock® Make It Yours™ cookie recipe.

It’s the perfect, simple cookie recipe made with real Country Crock® Original, but you can adapt it with one to two cups of whatever mix-ins you have on hand. There are so many different creations you can make!

Since the holiday season is right around the corner, I decided to take an expected ingredient and do something a little different with it. So, my own Country Crock® Make It Yours™ cookie recipe is made with dried cranberries and white chocolate chips. The cranberries and white chocolate chips really elevate this cookie from every day to holiday.

Buttery Cranberry and White Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Yield: 4 dozen

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Country Crock®
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Mix brown sugar, granulated sugar, Country Crock spread, egg, egg yolk and vanilla into a large bowl until well mixed. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda until blended (dough will be soft and creamy).
  2. Add mix-ins into the dough until every spoonful of dough has some of the delicious mix-ins. (Try leftover Halloween candy, or use your favorite mix-ins such as dried fruit, HERSHEY’S Kitchens® baking chips, sprinkles, etc)
  3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets 3-inches apart. Bake 10 to 12 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Cool 1 minute on wire rack; remove from baking sheets and cool completely.
