Cranberry-White Chocolate Cookies

It was a day that needed to happen. A day of cooking, baking and messing up every pan in the kitchen, again and again and again! It has been way to long!

It started with the idea of beer bread – we have too much beer right now – then morphed into more cookies for the pups and finally into – what can i make with dried cranberries!

This gem was also due to the fact that i wanted desert and there wasn’t anything worthy in the house…

I usually try to stick to CL, but their combined search engine brings up other – live Southern Living – aka – lard and butter!

So i started with this recipe, but didn’t have enough white chips, so i filled in the rest with chocolate and it was great!
