Pomegranate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

The perfect Christmas cookies! The pomegranate and white chocolate are so festive!
Servings: 2 1/2 dozen cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup white chocolate chunks
  • 1 cup pomegranate arils

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars together until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix until just incorporated.
  • Stir in the oats and white chocolate chunks. Make dough balls-about 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie. Tuck about 6-8 pomegranate arils in each cookie dough ball. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, until the cookies are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  • *Note-you can gently stir in the pomegranate arils, but I didn't want the cookies to turn pink at all. If you don't have white chocolate chunks, white chocolate chips will work as well. Enjoy!
