So easy, you'll make them in minutes. So pretty and tasty, you'll bring them to a party!
I love the holiday season because I have so much extra time on my hands.
Wait, no. That’s not right. Scratch that. I love the holiday season except that I have no extra time on my hands.
Hence, why I’m all about these cookies. They bring in the flavor of the season and they're special enough to serve at or bring to holiday parties – but they're also ridiculously easy to whip up.
This is pretty much all you need: Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix, a cup of dried cranberries and some white chocolate chips. If you like, add some chopped walnuts.
Simply prepare the cookie batter according to the package directions using the instructions for drop cookies. This means you blend a stick of softened butter, one egg and the mix to form a dough. Gently stir in cranberries, chocolate and nuts (if using).
Scoop onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. I used my mini scoop, which holds one tablespoon – exactly one tablespoon, not rounded. I find this size is ideal for baking cookies. Any bigger, and the edges tend to brown too quickly before the centers are baked through.
Bake in a preheated 350ºF oven for 10 to 14 minutes, or until the edges become golden.
And that’s it – you’re done. Let them cool, bring them along to your parties, and watch them disappear!
