White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies – Gluten Free

White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies are a tasty, chewy alternative to the classic chocolate chip cookie.  The dried cranberries add a nice pop of colour for the holiday season.

To make these white chocolate cranberry cookies, I started by dumping some Golden Crisco, light brown sugar and granulated sugar into a large mixing bowl.

I used an electric mixer to cream these ingredients together.

Then I added an egg, some orange juice and vanilla extract to the bowl.  

I continued mixing with the electric mixer.

Then I added some Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free all purpose flour blend, salt, baking soda and xanthan gum to the bowl. 

I mixed with the electric mixer until all of the ingredients were fully combined.

Then I added some white chocolate chips and dried cranberries to the bowl.

I used a rubber spatula to stir the white chocolate chips and cranberries into the cookie dough.

Then I used a 1 tbsp scoop to drop the cookie dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet leaving at least two inches between the balls.

I placed the baking sheet in the oven and baked the cookies until they were golden brown around the edges.

I removed the baking sheet from the oven and allowed the cookies to cool on the pan for a couple minutes.

Then I used a spatula to transfer them to a cooling rack to finish cooling off.

These white chocolate cranberry cookies are super chewy and loaded with white chocolate chips and dried cranberries.

Gluten Free White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies are a tasty gluten free dessert recipe perfect for the holidays. These chewy cookies are made with Bob's Red Mill gluten free flour and loaded with white chocolate chips and dried cranberries.

    Kathleen please excuse me if my question sounds dumb but I am ignorant in this subject. How are these cookies gluten free if I use AP flour? My daughter needs to eat a gluten free diet, and I need to be sure

      Good Morning Esther,
      Your question did not sound dumb at all!! I just updated the recipe because your keen eye found that I had omitted the words Gluten Free after Bob’s Red Mill Flour. Thank you so much for pointing this out to me! Enjoy the cookies if you do decide to attempt them.
      Thanks,
      Kathleen
