White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies and Other Things

Take a whole bunch of ingredients...Add a sweet Lillian who is finally getting over her cold and asked for some
Mommy Daughter time...

Don't forget the Gooseberry Patch book! Yes! She is great at cracking eggs!

And you'll end up with these yummy treats!

These are the cookies that I was talking about in an earlier post. It is not my recipe, Shawna Brock from Eglin AFB, FL submitted it to the folks at Gooseberry Patch. Zoom in on the picture of Lil with the book to see just how pretty it is! My oven is off by 50 degrees and I only back them for 10 minutes so that they are chewy, but here is the recipe as listed in the book...you will love it! These are headed to awesome guy's work.

  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar packed
  • 1 c. sweetened, dried cranberries
  • 1/2 c. white chocolate chips
  • 1 -3/4 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 c. butter softened
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 t. vanilla extract

Combine first 7 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; blend in remaining ingredients. (the dough will be crumbly, it's supposed to be.) Shape into walnut size balls; place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden. Makes about 2.5 dozen.

These cookies are pretty and would be great for Valentine's day! Thank you everyone for wishing Maddie well...she is all better now! Lilllian got it too and missed three days last week. She was well enough to go back today. :)

I have my bee girl mounted and have painted a background, but am going to change it up a bit. My Valentine girl didn't sell, so I'm second guessing myself a lot. It's still fun though :)

Have a great Monday all! And make those cookies! You'll be glad you did! :)

Don't second guess yourself, I have lots of things that haven't sold as well, one of my favorite pieces took a year to sell. Your art just has to meet the right person :) :D

Your little girls are just beautiful, so so sweet, and your cookies look so yummy! I love Gooseberry Cookbooks too :D
