White Chocolate Cranberry Pistachio cookies

My dad loves food. Its probably where I have acquired my love for food. So when the other day he requested for some home baked cookies, I could not say no to him. Initially I thought of making chocolate chip cookies, but then I thought I will try a new recipe out. Also, I have these white chocolate chips that have been lying in my refrigerator for a while I wanted to use. I looked around and found this Cranberry Pistachio white chocolate chip cookie recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction.

I made a few changes. One, I made them half whole wheat- which I generally do with most of my baked goods, especially with cookies. The whole wheat provides a lovely texture to cookies, without making them dense or compromising on taste. Also, I added some orange blossom water because I thought it would go well with the pistachio flavor in the cookie.

Have I told you how much I love the results refrigerated cookie dough bring to the cookies? It’s why I love the New York Times chocolate chip cookie recipe and its why I always make sure when I am patient enough to wait for my cookies to always refrigerate the dough overnight.

Hope you get to try these cookies out. They have a lovely flavor of orange blossom water and pistachios along with the tartness of dried cherries. If you try them out, please let me know how they turn out. You can connect with me here, on instagram, facebook and twitter.
