White Chocolate Cranberry Shortbread Blondies

White Chocolate Cranberry Shortbread Blondies are one of those rave desserts you’ll love. I made these cookies for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza this year and everyone kept raving about how much these loved these bars. They have a delicious shortbread dough that’s filled with Craisins and white chocolate chips. Real white chocolate chips–not vanilla chips. Then I sprinkled more white chocolate chips over the top of the batter before baking. Superb!

After I divvied up the cookies for John’s work place (probably about a thousand cookies), I decided to make a bunch more (probably another 700-800) for friends, staff and elders at our church. I made several variations of this cookie including Peppermint Blondies and Heath Toffee Blondies. I had one guy tell me he liked how I put different things in each one so that there was a wide variety of flavors and everything wasn’t chocolate or apricot or whatever.

These blondies are pretty simple to make yet they’re big on taste and texture. If you enjoy the combination of white chocolate and cranberries, then this cookie is definitely for you! The extra nice thing about these bars is that you can make them all year round. You won’t have to hunt down the ingredients like what’s required in some recipes. And you will be able to drool over these fabulous cookies 365 days a year! 🙂

I used these ingredients. Make sure you get REAL white chocolate chips. NOT white chips or premiere vanilla chips. They are not the same thing.
