These White Chocolate Cranberry Orange Cookies are really spectacular. They’re sweet from the orange and cranberry flavors and so soft. Perfect for any occasion!
I cannot believe Christmas is only 4 days away! I am so excited, but not as excited as my kids. Emma woke up this morning thinking it was Christmas Eve. haha. She was so sad when she realized we still have a few more days to go. 😀
Speaking of Christmas these White Chocolate Cranberry Orange Cookies will be the star of your cookie exchange or for dessert. The combination of orange and cranberry is just heavenly. We loved these right out of the oven all warm and also after they had cooled down. They stay so soft they almost melt in your mouth!
My kids even loved these cookies. I was surprised because of the cranberries, but they ate them up with tall glasses of milk. Kels told me they are her new favorite cookie of all time. 🙂 I think they’re mine too.
