**GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED**
You know Christmas is coming, when most posts flying around blog land are about desserts, LOL. These are some of my favorite cookies. I'm not sure where I got the recipe, but I've been making these ever since I moved out of my parents house.
I really love white chocolate. I know that technically it isn't white chocolate, since it does not contain cocoa butter, but what ever it is, I love it, LOL.
These cookies are a perfect combination of sweet, tangy and savory. The kids tried a few and they were declared the best cookies. Using flavored dried cranberries can easily change the flavor of these cookies. This year I tried strawberry flavored cranberries and the cookies are divine!!
Kris Kringle Cookies
1 C butter
1 C sugar
1/2 C brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 C flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 C white chocolate chips or chunks
1 C dried cranberries
1 C pecans, chopped
Beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla; mix until well blended. Add flour and baking soda; mix well. Stir in chocolate, cranberries and pecans. Drop rounded Tbs of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool 3 minutes, before removing from cookie sheet.
This chocolate melting pot is on my Christmas list this year. I really love to make chocolate coated candies and desserts, but always get so frustrated since the chocolate doesn't melt enough, or it seizes, since I'm impatient and crank the heat. The melting pot keeps the chocolate at the perfect temperature, so you don't have to get frustrated while dipping your goodies. This would also be great for parties (instead of a chocolate fountain). Suround it with yummy dippables and you have chocolate fondue. Since I'm so excited about this pot, I decided to purchase it, for one of my lucky readers and those participating in Holly Bloggy Christmas.
