Christmastime has forced me to rediscover my love of baking. Although I generally do enjoy baking, cooking is what really steals my heart. There’s so much creativity to be had in whipping up a salmon dinner, but while baking cookies, you have to follow the recipe pretty much exactly.
But over the past week, I’ve been baking up a storm. I wanted to give something thoughtful to several people so I decided to bake a nice big batch of white chocolate cranberry cookies and package them festively. I discovered this recipe about two years ago and have been head over heels with it ever since. One of my favorite combinations is white chocolate and cranberries- you just can’t go wrong. And the addition of a little bit of rum (or brandy) adds something extra special to these cookies.
Tonight I’m planning on putting together my dad’s Christmas gift, which is food related and many of the people in your life will love it! Stay tuned, and check back tomorrow! But for now… go try some of these delightful cookies.
Also: sorry for the lack of step-by-step lately. With the sun going away at 4:30, I’ve found myself cooking after work and snapping photos in the morning to get natural light. I’m working on a remedy for this- cross your fingers for me!
