cranberry & white chocolate cookies

These cookies are synonymous with Christmas baking for me. I love the way the bright red cranberries look like tiny jewels dotted all over the cookies. This recipe makes an enormous batch, and I love that - they go a long way. There's always enough to share with your family, friends, and colleagues.
I baked a triple batch of these chewy cookies for a Christmas Craft Fair the other weekend. It turns out, a triple batch was way too much! The recipe uses condensed milk, which gives a wonderful flavour and I am sure it's the secret ingredient for the chewy, soft texture that I love in a cookie. Plus, they are brilliantly quick to make, which is always a bonus when a recipe is delicious and fast.
