White Chocolate Cranberry Blondies
I love Christmas time! The smell of the trees, singing Christmas Carols for hours and a bit of decorating. Another good thing about the holidays is the return of some of my favorite cookies and baked goods. These blondies are so delicious. They are sweet with a bit of tart thrown in.
Several years ago My aunt Jami brought these to Thanksgiving and I thought they were so tasty. I have adapted the recipe a bit to have a few less ingredients. Around the holidays I don't necessarily have time to measure out a whole bunch of extra ingredients. I am sure you will love this quick and easy recipe!
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup of sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup flour
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips (1 bag)
2 cups fresh cranberries
Cream the butter and the sugar together and make sure they are well combined. Then add the eggs, one at a time. Combine the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and mix them well. Combining the white chocolate and cranberries with the flour helps them stay in the middle of the blondie rather than sinking to the bottom.
Add the dry ingredients to the butter and sugar mixture. Stir this together just until combined. Pour the dough into a well greased 9 X 13 pan. Smooth out the cookie like dough so it is very even. Then bake this at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. You will know these are ready when a toothpick comes out almost clean. Make sure you don't over bake these, you want them to be ooey gooey good!
