Ingredients

  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour spooned and leveled
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter softened
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup dried cranberries plus more for tops of cookies, if desired
  • ¾ cup white chocolate chips plus more for tops of cookies, if desired

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (you can also use a large bowl and a hand mixer), beat together the softened butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar at medium speed until creamy. Add the egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract and mix until well incorporated.
  • Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly mix in the flour mixture. Add the dried cranberries and white chocolate chips and mix on low speed until just combined.
  • Cover the bowl and chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least 1 ½ hours and up to 24 hours.
  • When you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat oven to 350° F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Scoop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls and place 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. If desired, press a few more cranberries and white chocolate chips into the tops of the cookies.
  • Bake for 8-11 minutes, until cookie edges are barely golden brown and centers are almost set. Be careful to not over-bake the cookies, as they will continue to set up as they cool on the baking sheet. Let cookies cool on the pan for a few minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

  • This recipe calls for one whole egg plus one egg yolk. To separate the egg yolk from the egg white, crack the egg in half. Then, over the sink or a bowl, carefully transfer the yolk back and forth between the two egg shell halves, allowing the whites to fall out of the shell, until only the yolk remains.
  • To freeze cookies after baking, let them cool completely and then seal them in an airtight container. Cookies will stay fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months. When you are ready to enjoy a cookie, let it thaw at room temperature for a few minutes or gently defrost it in the microwave.
  • You can also freeze cookie dough before baking. Scoop the dough into tablespoon-size balls and place on a baking sheet in the freezer until frozen. Once the balls of cookie dough are frozen you can transfer them to a zip-top bag or other airtight container for storage in the freezer. You can bake cookies straight from the freezer. You may need to add a few minutes to the baking time for frozen cookies.
