How to make pecan cranberry cookies
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Step 1: whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda.
Step 2: In a separate bowl, cream together the melted butter, light brown sugar, cane sugar, vanilla extract, and eggs.
Step 3: add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until combined.
Step 4: fold in the diced fresh cranberries, chopped pecans, and white chocolate chips to the batter.
Step 5: Drop the cookie batter by spoonfuls onto a baking sheet.

Some cranberry cookie recipes call for dried cranberries, but the flavor is so much better with fresh.
It’s worth the few minutes it takes to dice them up!
Once your white chocolate cranberry pecan cookies are done baking, remove them from the pan onto wire racks to cool completely.
Keep any leftover cookies in an airtight container and enjoy within 3 days for best freshness.
