12 Days of Christmas Cookies: #3 Kris Kringle Cookies

Kris Kringle Cookies – can you get more Christmasey than that?

I added my sparkly red infinity scarf in the background to make it even a little more festive:) These fabulous drop cookies have dried cranberries, white chocolate chips and walnuts (or your nut of choice.)

I started making these the Christmas after we got married and they’ve been a staple every since. This recipe makes a giant batch of cookies that you can eat, give, share and still have some left over!
