White Chocolate Cranberry Macadamia Cookies

This is one of my FAVE cookie recipes.  I got it from Recipezaar, but then “tweaked” it and added some craisins.  This is a must during the holidays.  And pretty much any time we have a craving…  LOL

NOTE:  I live in a HIGH Altitude area so I bake with Butter Flavor Crisco (Real butter doesn’t work well here).  But if you live in a place with normal altitude, you can replace the Crisco in the recipe with Real Butter (only – not margarine or spread) and it will be great.


1 Cup Butter Flavor Crisco
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs
2 1/4 Cups Flour
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Salt
6 Oz. White Chocolate Chips
3/4 Cup Craisins
1 Cup Macadamia Nuts


1.   Preheat over to 375 degrees.

2.  Cream the butter and add the sugars.

3.  Beat in the vanilla and eggs (one at a time).

4.  Add dry ingredients; mix well.

5.  Add in white chocolate chips, nuts, and craisins.

6.  Combine until well blended.

7.  Drop onto ungreased baking sheet by heaping tablespoon (Or your desired size).

8.   Bake for 10 minutes.  Cookies should be lightly brown on the edges.

9.  Remove from oven and let cool on rack.

These end up really chewy and delicious – enjoy!
