Description

White chocolate is always there for you whenever you need a break from the bittersweet richness of dark chocolate. These Spiced White Chocolate Cranberry Walnut Cookies bring a refreshing flavor profile to the dessert table with brown butter, warm spices, tart cranberries, buttery walnuts, and of course, luscious white chocolate.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cups Unsalted Grass-fed Butter, Divided
  • 1-⅔ cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cloves
  • ½ teaspoons Sea Salt
  • 2 whole Large Pasture-raised Eggs, Room Temperature
  • ¾ cups Turbinado Sugar (raw Cane Sugar)
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ⅓ cups White Chocolate Chips Or Chunks
  • ¼ cups Dried Cranberries
  • ¼ cups Roughly Chopped Walnuts

Preparation

Start by browning the butter. Heat a small nonstick skillet or saucepan over medium heat and add 1 cup of the butter, 1 full stick. As it melts, you’ll see it turn from an off-white, to a yellow, then amber. While it melts, chop the remaining ½ stick into small cubes and add this to the melted, almost-browned butter. Turn off the heat immediately and let the cubed butter melt into the browned butter. Transfer the butter to a small bowl and let it cool completely.

While the butter cools, combine dry ingredients, except the baking soda, in a medium bowl and set aside for later.

Once cooled, add butter to a large mixing bowl (a stand-mixer if you have one) and beat butter with eggs and sugar until smooth. Small granules of sugar will remain, and that’s fine. Add vanilla and baking soda and beat again.

Working in batches, add dry ingredients to the wet and stir after each addition until just combined. I used a 2-inch cookie scooper to make larger cookies, which is roughly the size of 2 heaping tablespoons. Scoop the dough into even portions onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the dough portions onto the baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches of space between each one. Bake for 10–12 minutes if using a 2-inch cookie scooper or similar measurement. Bake for 8–10 minutes if using the 1-inch scoop or similar measurement. Pull them out when the edges are golden brown and set. The center will most likely still look under-baked—this is fine! Let them rest on the baking sheet 8–10 minutes and the center will firm up just enough to remain gooey on the inside, crispy on the outside.

Serve immediately, and store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. Enjoy!
