Cranberry Bliss Cookies are chewy, have a hint of tart from the cranberry pieces and sweetness from white chocolate chips and frosting drizzled over them making them one delicious Christmas cookie (or really a delicious cookie that can be enjoyed any time of year, because I’ll definitely be making these throughout the year!)
I don’t know about you, but as soon as December rolls around I start seeing Cranberry Bliss Bars appear at Starbucks. They’re an absolute favorite of mine. Ever since having one at the beginning of the month I’ve been thinking about them.
So when I needed to bake a cookie for the Great Big Food Blogger Cookie Swap, all I could think about was making these cookies. The Great Food Blogger Swap exchange is such a great event. Bloggers from all over the world participate and send each other cookies, proceeds from the event go to an organization that aims to fight pediatric cancer. After you sign up for the event (thank you Lindsay and Julie for all the coordination) you get sent three matches and then you mail three dozen cookies to three different bloggers, and then you receive three different cookies from three different bloggers.
I was so excited that I got to send cookies to three lovely ladies I’d actually all met in person: my bestie Lynn from Order in the Kitchen whom I met at ChoppedCon, and my girl Taylor from Food Faith Fitness and Melissa from Hungry Food Love whom I believe I met at BlogHer Food in Miami.
To make these cranberry bliss cookies you’ll make the cookie batter and add in fresh cranberries and white chocolate chips and then frost them with a cream cheese frosting:
And let me tell you…getting three different cookies in the mail? Awesome! I got chewy molasses cookies, then I got chocolate almond biscotti and then brown butter shortbread cookies. Here is a picture of the cookies I received:
It was such a fun event to participate in and bake cookies for!
