Merry Christmas from Memphis, TN. I made a batch of these White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies. Here is a trick: Beat two eggs, let the dry cherries or cranberries set in the egg mixture for about 30 minutes (cover with plastic wrap) It will help "plump" the fruit up.

White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies
1 stick butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons milk
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 375 F.
In a medium bowl, with electric mixer, cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until just combined. Set aside.
Sift together flour, soda, and salt. Add milk to the butter mixture and then add the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Batter should be stiff.
In another bowl, combine nuts, cranberries, and white chocolate. Then add to batter, stirring only to blend. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake for approximately 11 to 13 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
