White chocolate cranberry cookie bars

Christmas is synonymous with cookies and these white chocolate cranberry cookie bars are going to become a family favorite in no time.  I’ve made these cookie bars more times than I’d like to admit in the last few weeks while testing this recipe and let me just tell you, every time I make them they disappear incredibly quickly. The cranberries add just the right amount of tartness to balance the creamy, sweet white chocolate making these bars moreish and very easy to indulge in.

They’ll be perfect for Christmas cookie exchanges, as homemade Christmas gifts or as dessert at your holiday parties.
