White Chocolate Chip Cookies With Craisins

White Chocolate Chip Cookies with Craisins. That’s a long name for a cookie! Aside from the cookie name, these will be your new favorite chocolate chip cookies. The first time I made them was around Christmas. They are considered a holiday cookie. I’m not really sure why because they are way too good to only eat once a year! I’ve made them a bunch of times in the past few months. I guess I am somewhat addicted.

Ingredients Needed

As far as cookies go, specifically chocolate chip cookies, the ingredients needed for this yummy cookie is very similar. I love the addition of craisins and the change from white chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate chips. The contrast of sweet white chocolate and the slight sourness of the craisins is unbelievably yummy!

Here is the full list of ingredients you need:

  • 1 3/4 cups Flour
  • 3/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 3/4 cup Butter
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 12 oz White Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup Craisins
  • 3/4 cup Macademia Nuts chopped
  • 1 cup Oats If you want to make these Oatmeal, white chocolate, craisin cookies

How To Make

One of my favorite homemade desserts to make is cookies. Basically, making cookie dough is pretty easy and it comes together quickly. Also, once you pop the cookies in the oven, they are done in less than 15 minutes! Between preparing the cookie dough, cooking the cookies, and letting the cookies cool, you can be chewing a chewy cookie in less than 30 minutes from start to finish. Pretty awesome!

Making the white chocolate chip cookies with craisins is also easy to make. Just preheat the oven. Whisk the flour and baking soda together. Next, beat the butter and sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer so that the mixture is light and fluffy. After that, add the egg and vanilla extract and beat well. Then, gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients until they are combined. Don’t over mix the dough. We want light and fluffy cookies, not dense cookies! Finally, stir in the white chocolate chips, craisins, and macademia nuts (if using) and mix them into the cookie dough.

If you would like to make these oatmeal cookies, you can add the oats at this point. In my house we have a split between who likes oatmeal cookies and who doesn’t. I split the cookie dough into 2 bowls and then add the oats to 1 bowl. That way, half of my house can get their oatmeal craisin chocolate chip cookies and the other half can eat them without the oatmeal. Win-win and it’s easy to do.

Drop batter by heaping tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or just until golden brown. You want them to be soft when you take them out of the oven. They will firm up as they cool.

Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for at least 2-3 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack or plate to cool completely.

New Favorite Cookie

White chocolate chip craisin cookies are too good not to share. You won’t want to give away your entire batch, of course, but you will want others to enjoy the fruits of your labor! This recipe makes approximately 36 cookies so technically, you should be okay sharing at least a couple of cookies. You could always double the recipe and then freeze some of the cookies. That would be a great idea for you to enjoy now and bring them to a gathering in the near future. Just defrost the cookies and pop them in the oven for a few minutes to warm the up. Just like fresh baked cookies!

Try making these instead of chocolate chip cookies. You will LOVE them, I’m positive. You could be like me and enjoy them MORE than chocolate chip cookies. I never thought that would happen because I’m pretty obsessed with homemade chocolate chip cookies. However, it happened!
