These white chocolate-dipped cranberry orange sugar cookies are the most festive cookie to include on your cookie line-up! The trio of cranberries, orange, and white chocolate is unbeatable!
In case you need something other than cheesecake swirled gingerbread to add to your cheat-food list for this month….
It’s the season of cookies and its time to properly celebrate that fact. With stacks of white chocolate cranberry orange sugar cookies.
Preferably stacks so high that they teeter a bit.
Requiring you to fix it by eating a cookie of course. Like so. ^^^
These cranberry orange sugar cookies pretty much sum up holiday cookies in a nutshell. We’ve got fragrant orange + sweet, chewy dried cranberries all wrapped up in a buttery sugar cookie.
And obviously we gotta dip that sucker in white chocolate. You just gotta do it.
They will disappear within moments, guys. They kinda shine and stand out on any cookie tray.
Under the assumption that they actually make it to the cookie tray. Cookie accidents are just known to happen. ??
White Chocolate Cranberry Orange Sugar Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
- 1-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup white chocolate, melted
- Preheat oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside
- In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar together until completely creamy. Beat in egg, vanilla, orange juice, and zest until smooth. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Beat flour mixture into liquid until a soft dough forms. Stir in dried cranberries.
- Scoop dough into 1-in balls and place 1-in apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies at 350F 9-10 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Allow to cool on baking sheet 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
- Once cookies are cooled, dip half of each cookie in melted white chocolate and place on wax paper to set for 1 hour (or refrigerate for a few minutes to harden the chocolate) Enjoy!
