This recipe makes a great Christmas cookie. The white chocolate chips, chopped almonds, and dried cherry-flavored cranberries create the perfect combination in a simple soft sugar cookie dough. It just seems to taste like a 'mouthful of Christmas.'

Yesterday, my 7 year old grandson told me that he loved Craisins. I had just seen this recipe and decided to make it for him. The cookies are awesome! It's a large recipe and that's good. By the time I distribute bags of cookies to my grandsons and a few friends, I'll have some left for me too. The only changes I made to this recipe was that I used regular Craisins instead of the cherry flavored and it was fine. I love the buttery taste of these cookies and I'm sure my family and friends will too. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
