A few years ago, my girls and I were sitting around my kitchen island thinking of what we should bake. Nearing the Christmas season, we wanted something festive and fun. Looking through my pantry, I spied a bag of dried cranberries and a jar of pumpkin seeds. Red. Green. Yep…looked like Christmas to me.
Now, all we needed was a touch of white. And I’m sure you’ve already guessed it: white chocolate! We quickly scrounged up some white chocolate chips from my rather ridiculous chocolate chip baking stash for that added touch of Christmas winter white.

We measured, mixed, and snitched our way through these Christmas cookies and waited, rather impatiently, as they baked in the oven. Piping hot and still gooey in the center each girl (myself too) ate at least two of these cookies in a matter of mere minutes.
After our bellies were full of sugar and butter I asked my girls what we should call these cookies. Cranberry cookies? White chocolate cranberry pumpkin cookies? Red, white, and green cookies. To which, they all replied no. (Cant’say I blame them…white chocolate cranberry pumpkin cookies is quite the mouthful.) “What about Christmas cookies” my oldest suggested. And well, the rest they say, is history!
