We love cookies at our house because they are handy to eat and pretty quick to whip up. I came up with the idea for these White Chocolate Chip Craisin Cookies when I was looking for a way to use the craisins I had leftover after making this Broccoli Salad with Creamy Feta Dressing.

I just couldn’t wait to make another recipe using craisins! For some reason, I only like raisins if they are served warm. So that means I only like them in freshly baked, warm cookies.

But these craisins! I like them warm or cold. They are delicious in salads, cookies, and muffins.

Instead of using a traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe I decided to use a sugar cookie dough and add the craisins and white chocolate chips to it. I didn’t want to use any brown sugar, and that is why this is not a traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Not that I have anything against brown sugar. I think cookies that contain brown sugar are delicious.

I just wanted it to be a simple recipe that was closer to a sugar cookie than a chocolate chip cookie. These cookies came out really good and I am glad I chose to do them this way.

Of course, these White Chocolate Chip Craisin Cookies were a hit with Lee and me, but my daughter liked them too. To me, these are a more adult type of cookie.

I think the white chocolate and craisins make them more appealing to adults. Sort of a grown up type of cookie.

For cookies like you see in the pictures; reserve some chips and craisins and then add them to the top of the cookies before baking.
