White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

Sun is out - and the end of the exam period is in sight!
What else do I want. I am so excited for tomorrow noon: I will be able to do all the things I haven’t had time for during the last weeks: go out, see friends, go shopping, do some paperwork, hang out in the garden, read books (I have accumulated a very big pile), plan vacation, look for an apartment in Vienna and obviously bake ;)

I really like those cookies - white chocolate and cranberry. A combination that you don’t get too often. At least in Germany. We are not that much of a cranberry nation. We don’t even have a German name for them. But the berries give the cookies the special twist…!
So give them a try.

Enjoy the sun and have a wonderful day,
