The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap {The Duke’s Favorite Cookie}

I was so excited to participate in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap for the second year in a row. This massive cookie swap is the brain child of Lindsay and Julie and involves hundreds of food bloggers baking up a storm, then shipping their cookies across the country for other bloggers to enjoy.

Last year I made Biscoff Snickerdoodle Blondies and they were a huge hit. I was racking my brain for the perfect recipe this year, when the Duke suggested I make his favorite cookie. They’re nothing fancy, but my White Chocolate, Cranberry, and Pecan Cookies always fly of the tray.

After baking four dozen of these bad boys, I shipped them off to Cari, Justina, and Megan. I hope you ladies enjoyed them as much as we do around here. :)

  • Yield: 36 cookies

These sweet and salty cookies are sure to fly off the tray at your next gathering.



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cream butter with sugars in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, and then vanilla, until all ingredients are well combined.
  3. In a small bowl, stir flour with salt and baking soda. Slowly mix into wet ingredients until just blended.
  4. Stir white chocolate chips, pecans, and cranberries into cookie batter. Scoop by rounded tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet before moving to rack to cool completely.

      These sound rich without being too sweet – which is a very good thing. Yum!

      Made them last night without the pecans (cause I didn’t have any and don’t really care for them). There are very good, but next time I think I’ll put the nuts in!
