A cookie a day
Our favorite Christmas tradition
Whether you're making cookies to give, swap or just enjoy all season long, we know you'll be baking your favorites. Because what better time to cook up dozen after dozen than Christmastime?
As we were getting our supplies together this year, we put together this amazing list of the cookies we just can't live without. Naturally, we thought to share them with you. You might want to consider doubling your batches, especially if you want some leftover for Santa...these will go fast.
Cranberry Vanilla Chip Cookies: You can never go wrong with vanilla and cranberry. That's why we've combined the two in one tasty cookie from our cookbook 101 Farmhouse Favorites. Whip up a batch of these to wrap and give as a gift, set out for Santa, or just keep for yourself! See the recipe below.
1/2 c. butter, softened
1-1/3 c. sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 t. imitation butter flavor
1-3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. long-cooking oats, uncooked
1-1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 c. sweetened dried cranberries
1 c. white chocolate chips
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and butter flavor; mix well. Add flour, oats, baking soda and salt; mix well. Stir in cranberries and chocolate chips. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 9 to 11 minutes, until golden. Cool one minute on baking sheets. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Makes 3 dozen.
