  • 170 g room temperature butter
  • 150 g brown sugar
  • 30 g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 250 g flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla pudding mix/powder
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 140 g white chocolate chips / chopped white chocolate
  • 100 g dried cranberries


  • In a bowl whisk together flour, pudding mix, soda, and salt.
  • In another bowl beat together butter and both of the sugars with a mixer – until smooth and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and vanilla extract and blend them in. When everything is nicely incorporated start slowly adding the mixture from the first bowl (with the mixer on a low speed) and mix just until both wet and dry ingredients are combined. Don’t over-mix!
  • Then add your white chocolate chips and dried cranberries and quickly blend them in so they are evenly distributed.
  • Cover the dough in plastic wrap and put in the fridge for at least an hour.
  • When you are ready to bake preheat the oven to 180°C, take your cookie dough out of the fridge, scoop some dough (about 1 tbsp) and roll it into balls. If the dough is too hard let it sit on room temperature for 10 min.
  • Place cookie balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake them for 8-10 min. They will look very soft when you take them out but they will harden when they cool down so it’s important to not over-bake them.
  • Let them cool on a baking sheet for 5 min and then place them on a cooling rack to cool completely. Before baking another batch, let the baking sheet cool.
  • Keep the baked cookies in an airtight container.
