How to make Holiday Knockout Cookies

Taking an already amazing cookie recipe and added a little of this, a little of that and made it the ultimate holiday cookie. This holiday cookie will knock out all other cookie competitors. To say these are delicious is an understatement and my friends and family can testify for me. There is currently one left from the batch and I just made them a couple days ago. Normally I would leave the last one for my toddler, but I’m nine months pregnant so all food must go straight to baby.

White chocolate chips, dried cranberries, orange zest and juice make these delectable cookies taste so amazing. Adding the zest of the orange right into the batter allows the cookie to be infused with flavors of tantalizing citrus and spice. While adding the juice of the orange into the glaze gives that perfect balance of orange flavor all around. My favorite way to eat these is just after the frosting has cooled slightly and the white chocolate inside is still warm and gooey. One other important ingredients is the oats, allowing the perfect texture and chewiness of this cookie.
