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.
