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.

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.
