Christmas is right around the corner and I haven’t stopped baking yet. I am having way too much fun in the kitchen. I love this time of year and the sugar rush keeps me going:) Almond cookies with dried cranberries and white chocolate are my latest cookie creation. All of the flavors in this cookie come together to create the perfect Christmas cookie.

If you love almond flavored treats, you will fall in love with these cookies. The almond paste and almond extract give these cookies a nice almond flavor. The almond paste also keeps the cookies soft and chewy. I stirred in dried cranberries and white chocolate chips to add sweetness and holiday cheer.

If you are looking for one more cookie to add to your holiday cookie platter, try almond cookies with dried cranberries and white chocolate.

A few of my other favorite holiday cookies include:

Soft Gingersnaps with White Chocolate Chunks
Rolo Cookies
Lime Coconut Snowballs
World Peace Cookies
Pomegranate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ok, I better stop there. I have too many favorites. If you are looking for additional cookie recipes, check out all of our cookie recipes. There are a lot of good ones:)

  1. There are some attention-grabbing cut-off dates on this article however I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity but I’ll take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we would like more! Added to FeedBurner as nicely
