I usually don’t eat white chocolate. Not because I would have an opinion on it being healthy or not but because I simply don’t like the taste of it. I find it to sweet and miss the cacao flavor in it. But these cookies here proved me wrong. The combination of white chocolate and cranberries in these cookies is amazing and these cookies might just be my favorite out of all the cookies I’ve baked in my cookie baking marathon.
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup Xylitol
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups spelt flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup white chocolate, chopped
1. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda; gradually add to butter mixture and mix well. Stir in cranberries and chips.
2. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 190 degrees Celsius for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 1 minute before removing to wire racks.
