White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies


I love these cookies anytime of the year but love to bake them specially for Christmas due to their red, white and green color. They are perfect for holiday baking and make a very good holiday gift to share with our family and friends. I can assure you, your friends will be happy you shared these cookies with them!

These cookies are thick, soft and super delicious. The cranberries give nice tartness to these cookies which is balanced by the sweetness of white chocolate and the pistachios add a nice nutty flavor to these cookies. Together they make a wonderful combination!

It is very easy to make recipe. In given measurements, we can make around 24 cookies. Just make sure to be around the oven while the cookies are baking as they will be ready in about 10 minutes. Once you notice that the rim of cookies are light brown shade, it will be safe to take out the cookies from the oven.

Sugar- 1/2 cup

Brown sugar- 1/4 cup

  • Cover it and refrigerate it for minimum 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit (185 degrees celsius) .
  • Scoop out cookies on a cooking tray and then bake in preheated oven for about 10 minutes. Once the rim of cookies are light brown in color, it will be safe to remove the cookies from the oven.
  • Let them be on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes and then put it on cooling rack till they cool down completely.
  • Delicious cookies are ready!!


Save half of pistachios and sprinkle them on top. It will add nice color to the cookies.

If you are using 2 cookie sheets, make sure to rotate the tray in between so that the cookies in top rack don't get too brown and all the cookies bake evenly.

I am Sonali and Welcome to Sonali's Homefoods! Thank you for visiting my blog. This is my attempt to digitize my culinary experiments and also seek creative satisfaction. I am not a professional chef or a nutritionist. I enjoy cooking and often find it meditative as it takes my mind of many unnecessary issues. I look forward to sharing with you all, recipes that are tried, tested, tasted and appreciated by my family and friends. Some recipes that I learnt from my parents, some from my friends and their moms. Some I got from recipe books and some I got from internet. But I am most excited to share with you some recipes that I have developed myself. I look forward to enjoy this delicious journey with you all!
