These Cranberry, White Chocolate, Crystallized Ginger Cookies are lip-smackin’ good. So sensational, though, that you’ll have trouble not eating them all yourself!
A Holiday Favorite: Cranberry White Chocolate Crystallized Ginger Cookies
These flavor-packed cookies rank near the top of my best cookies ever list. Besides the outrageously delicious combination of tastes to tickle every taste bud, the bite of these is like no other. There’s a certain snap when your teeth meet the sweet… not a crisp cookie, but not a soft chewy cookie either. They’re somewhere balanced perfectly in the middle of the spectrum.
A tantalizing flavor combination
The addition of white chocolate chunks, dried cranberries, pecans and crystallized ginger make these cookies some of the best you’ll ever eat. The cranberries make them super festive and the aroma of ginger in your kitchen while these are baking will put you in the holiday spirit. If you’ve been searching for a new cookie for your Christmas baking, give this one a try. Before you know it, the season will be upon us, so it’s time to stock up on butter, sugar (Imperial, of course!) and flour plus all the extras to make your holidays memorable.
