Uber Magical Cranberry-White Chocolate Cookies

These cookies have magic powers. Not only are they flat out delicious but they give their baker the power of bravery and will make the person the baker gives them to fall madly in love with them. That’s right, these cookies are dangerous. You’ve been warned.

I’ve actually mentioned these cookies long ago in the infancy period of my blogging days, long before I was snapping shots of dinner before we get to sit and enjoy it, so I feel it’s ok to feature these little magic little morsels again.

Story time!

Long before Handsome and I were aspiring to be the Marlborough Man and Pioneer Woman we had our rough spots. We actually had been together and split up and moved on with our lives. The problem was, we still had to interact with one another and our parents had to interact with one another.

Rule #1. Never date your the man with keys to your business, your home, your bosses home… you get the idea. In other words, don’t date your contractor.

Time went on though and I was baking these cookies and that’s when I discovered how the combination of cookie, cranberry, and white chocolate is a powerful undocumented ancient spell. With a little push and bag of fresh from the oven cookies in hand, I found myself at the job site where Handsome was currently working, knocking on the door.

The rest is well… history.

We may not have a ranch and cattle but our heard of three pets and our herb garden are close enough for now.

    Glad to hear that things are working out for you and your boyfriend. It must have been so awkward and uncomfortable to see him during the break! I hate running into exes.
    this cookie looks delicious – I love the combo of white chocolate and raspberries.

    Cute story! I always love to hear stories of how people have met. These cookies look right up my alley. I love cranberries and these cookies look bursting with them!

    These look so good! They remind me of the cookies my neighbor would make for me growing up. Hers had oatmeal in them too, but ever since I’ve loved the combo of cranberry and white chocolate.

    These look really light, yet crunchy in texture-yumo! Also, they have the red/white Christmas theme going on. I will add this to the reasons for having a second celebration of Christmas- the second one being in July! Great post.

    These would make me fall in love again with my Handsome, too!! :) They look so pretty and yummylicious – can’t go wrong with white chocolate and cranberries.

    Congrats on Top 9!

    Magical cookies sound pretty good to me, especially when they have cranberries and white chocolate in them. Maybe they work in other situations too? I’m just going to have to bake some and find out.

    Uber-magical is definitely a word I’d use just looking at them. I love dried cranberries and am crazy about white chocolate (can’t stand the brown kind though). It’s so true about the way to a man’s heart. When I was able to convince Hubby to come over to dinner after our first date instead of going to his friend’s house and doing “guy” things, I knew I had hooked him. :)
