White Chocolate & Cranberry Sugar Cookies…

It’s Day 3 of Christmas Cookie week and to make things super easy, this cookie has the same sugar cookie base as yesterday’s cookie! Yay!
It’s an easy drop cookie that you can whip up quite quickly, and then drizzle white chocolate and sprinkle with finely chopped craisins or dried cranberries.
You also have the option of adding some orange flavouring to the sugar cookie base for a fun flavour twist.
Yum!
