cookies with cranberries and white chocolate...palacio de hierro style :P

there is a department store in mexico called "palacio de hierro". they have a grocery store section with bakery where they make delicious cookies...they sell different flavors...classic chocolate chips, mocha, nuts and my favorite white chocolate and cranberries...this saturday i baked cookies that tasted almost as good as the ones from the palacio de hierro bakery :)

3 cups flour
1 cup butter (soft and not salty)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons warm water
1 cup chopped white chocolate (or white chocolate chips)
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 teaspoon salt

in a large bowl, i creamed both sugars and the butter.

i added the first egg and mixed it well.

then i added the second egg and mixed a little more :)

then i stirred in the vanilla.

i dissolved the baking powder in warm water and added it to the batter. i also mixed in the salt.

after that i stirred in the flour...cup by cup...

i divided the dough in two because i was making two types of cookies (ones with cranberries, ones without).

i chopped the chocolate and cut the cranberries and mixed them in the batter.

i spooned the mixture on the cookie sheet...

...and baked for about 10 minutes (in the preheated oven at 175 °C).

i took them out and let them cool on a rack...and then we ate them :)

and my little cousin who was visiting us tells me: "stop taking pictures of the cookies, you already took many of them...take some pictures if me instead!"

hope you will try and enjoy the cookies as we did :)
