Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies are so chewy and sweet.
Red cranberries and white chocolate make these cookies delicious and bright. These homemade cookies will be hard to resist, especially when they are warm and fresh from the oven.
Easy Homemade Cookies
I love cookies and my Grandma always made shortbread with a cookie press, they were my favorite (with my Mom’s thumbprint cookies). This recipe is one that my kids absolutely love on the cookie plate.
- These deliciously chewy, and soft cookies are made with a package of pudding mix. This mix will ensure that they are moist and tender inside and a little crisp on the outside.
- These cookies are so easy to make and take so little time.
- They’re super delicious as the cranberries add a tart pop of flavor while the white chocolate tones things down. The two together are pretty much the perfect flavor combo.
- This recipe makes about three dozen cookies which also means they’re great for cookie swaps or for spreading the love this summer and dropping off on your friend’s doorsteps!
Ingredients & Variations
WHITE CHOCOLATE When purchasing white chocolate try to make sure that there is at least 20% cocoa butter.
PUDDING MIX Make sure to choose the instant white chocolate pudding mix. The instant version will help the cookies to set.
VARIATIONS These cookies would also taste great with a few nuts as add-ins. Walnuts, pecans, pistachios, almonds, and cashews are all great options. A splash of orange zest would also add depth of flavor to the cookies.
How to Make Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies
Just a few minutes of prep and the first batch will be coming out of the oven in less than 30 minutes!
- Cream together wet ingredients in one bowl & mix dry ingredients in another.
- Add dry ingredients to wet; stir in cranberries & chocolate.
- Form into dough balls & bake (per the recipe below).
- Drizzle with extra melted chocolate (optional) & serve!
Tips for Soft Chewy Cookies
- Don’t overcook the cookies. This is the best tip to ensure that the cookies are soft and chewy right from the oven.
- And what’s more, make sure that the butter is softened before creaming.
- To keep them soft and chewy make sure that they are stored properly. Keep them in an airtight container with a small piece of bread.
