Gooey chewy white chocolate chip cranberry cookies recipe
I would say the recipe is very simple and easy to follow. First you need to cream white sugar, brown sugar and soft butter in the stand or hand mixer. Mix it until well combined and maybe even a bit fluffy. Then add egg and keep mixing. I really love to use my Kitchen Aid mixer for this task. The only downside is that its pretty loud.
Next step is to add the flour. Measure it exactly (don’t forget to level it! ). I usually just scoop the flour from the jar with my measuring cup and then level it with the knife. Works very well!
So you mix the flour with the stand mixer as well. When its time to add white chocolate chips and cranberries, detach the stand mixer bowl and add ingredients and mix by hand. Dont overmix though. In this recipe i used dried cranberries. I could not find sugar free so i used regular ones.
Its very handy to scoop cookies with a ice cream scooper. If you dont have one, just roll little balls with your hands and them place then on the ungreased cookie sheet. You can line it with the parchment paper but i didnt. It will not stick because of the high amount of butter in them.
Why are my cookies not chewy?
If your cookies are crispy and hard, most likely you simply cooked them for too long. Try to reduce baking time by a minute or two and check. You need this white chocolate cranberry cookies to be lightly golden on the bottom when done. If they are turning golden or brown on top they are definitely overcooked. When you get the cookies out of the oven and lightly press on them, they have to be very very soft.
