White Chocolate Chip Craisin® Cookies
(Makes 2 dozen)
1 stick (1/2 c.) butter, softened
1/2 c. packed light brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
3/4 Tbsp. brandy
3/4 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 c. white chocolate chips
1 c. Craisins®
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Add egg, brandy and vanilla extract. Beat well.
In a separate bowl, sift together flour and baking soda.
Add the flour and baking soda to the creamed sugar mixture. Beat on low to medium speed until fully mixed.
Stir in white chocolate chips and Craisins®.
Drop dough by tablespoon fulls onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake 9-10 minutes until cookies are set but still a little doughy-looking in the middle. (Don't let them get too brown or they'll end up being really hard).
I thought these were pretty good, but maybe a little too sweet. I brought most of them to work and they seemed to go over well, but I think I might still try reducing the sugar to 1/3 c. light brown and 1/3 c. white next time.
Though, on second thought, these were pretty good with a bowl of vanilla ice cream, so maybe all I need is a glass of milk. Hmm.... think I'll have to go taste test some more! :-)
