No, I did not crochet white chocolate and cranberry cookies, although that would be super cute. When I first started this blog, I mentioned that I would not only blog about amigurumi, but also my other interests, such as baking and traveling. And so, while I am still working on other crochet projects, I thought I’d do a post about some delicious cookies I made :)
I absolutely love baking and sharing the treats I make with friends and family. It also helps that I recently got a KitchenAid mixer- what a difference it makes! My previous mixer would rattle and shake like crazy, and I frequently had to scrape the sides of the mixer bowl. I love my KitchenAid mixer and how well it works!
I had some dried cranberries and white chocolate chips I wanted to use, so I looked up a recipe on All Recipes, a website that I love. You can type in the ingredients you want to use, and they list recipes that contain those ingredients! The “White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies” recipe I used can be found here.
Getting ready to cream the ingredients together…
Adding white chocolate chips and dried cranberries…yum!
The recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of brandy, but I substituted 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract instead. Here they are all ready to be baked!
They turned out deliciously sweet, moist and chewy. This is a recipe I’ll definitely be using again in the future. I love baking cookies, so this is a nice variation of the typical chocolate chip cookie! Give them a try if you’re in a baking mood :)
