On some weekends when we have what seems like a million things going on, I will bake with a prepared sugar cookie mix to save some time. The other day it we were so busy that I really wanted to bake something, but did not want to make a huge mess in the kitchen. Nor did I have a lot of time to bake from scratch. So I looked at what I had iin my pantry and decided to use some of the ingredients I already had. I made these Cranberry Chip Pecan Cookies using the following ingredients:
These taste amazing even though they start with a mix and I love how quicky I can put them together. It seriously does not get any easier than this. The combination of the flavors is so tasty and satisfying too.
Cranberry Chip Pecan Cookies
1 bag prepared sugar cookie mix
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 C white chocolate chips
1/2 C dried cranberries
1/3 c chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and mix the cookie mix and butter and egg together in a bowl. When combined well, add the chips, cranberries and pecans.
Bake for 9-11 minutes, until golden brown. Cool on rack.
Easy peasy! No one will know you started with a mix and will love the flavors!
