Description

My 4-year-old has some really good recipe ideas …

Ingredients

  • FOR THE COOKIES:
  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Butter, Softened
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • ¾ cups Semi-sweet (or Dark!) Chocolate Chips
  • ¾ cups Dried Cranberries
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • ¼ cups Semi-sweet (or Dark!) Chocolate Chips
  • 4 ounces, weight Light Cream Cheese, Room Temperature
  • ⅓ cups Cocoa Powder
  • 3 cups Powdered/Confectioners Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon Water (add More If Needed For Smooth Consistency)
  • FOR THE TOPPING:
  • 1 cup Dried Cranberries, Roughly Chopped

Preparation

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.
