Have you started planning out your Christmas baking yet? Be sure and add this yummy recipe to your list- Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies. Dried cranberries give a holiday flavor and the white chocolate a richness to your cookies. Reduce the amount of chips and cranberries a bit and throw in some pecans or walnuts for a tasty crunch. If you are a baker or know someone else who loves to be in the kitchen grab a set of these silpat mats, I just ordered myself a set a couple weeks ago and love how easy they clean up (and I am not going through roll after roll of expensive parchment paper), the really make baking easier.
