My 4-year-old has some really good recipe ideas …
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugars on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Beat in the vanilla.
Reduce speed to low and slowly add in the dry ingredients. Beat until well-combined. Stir in the white chocolate chips and cranberries.
Place dough in the fridge for about 10 minutes while your oven heats up. You can leave it longer if you want but 10 minutes is about my patience max.
Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease lightly.
Place dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet, at least 2 inches apart. Bake for 9-11 minutes, until the cookies are lightly golden only around the edges. Remove pan from the oven, let them sit on the pan for 1 minute, and then transfer the cookies to a cooling rack until cool. Repeat with remaining dough until all cookies are baked. Wait until cookies reach room temperature before adding frosting.
For the frosting:
Melt chocolate in the microwave in a small bowl, heating for 30 seconds, then stirring and heating in additional 10 second increments until almost completely melted. Then stir until melted completely. Set aside.
Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat together the cream cheese and cocoa until combined. Add melted chocolate and blend well.
Reduce speed to low and add the powdered sugar, vanilla and water. Mix until incorporated, adding more water if necessary to reach desired spreading consistency.
Spread the frosting on the cooled cookies. Immediately sprinkle the frosted cookies with the chopped dried cranberries.
Store iced cookies in the fridge or freezer. To thaw from frozen, but frozen cookies in the fridge.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!

In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
