White Chocolate Cherry Nut Cookies

Cookie trays are the perfect dessert around the holidays because they can be made in advance and are easy to serve with little fanfare.  They are the star on the table of any gathering.

My daughter in law, Brandy adapted this recipe for White Chocolate Cherry Nut Cookies from my recipe for Chocolate Drizzled Cherry Delights. She came up with the idea to add white chocolate chips and pecans to the cookie batter and drizzle white chocolate over them.  Turns out I really like these over the chocolate ones.  Since there are some in the family that prefer the chocolate ones, that's the reason you make both and let everyone choose for themselves.

These White Chocolate Cherry Nut Cookies are soft and chewy with chunks of white chocolate, chopped candied cherries and crunchy pecans in a Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix.  These cookies are so easy and quick to make don't underestimate the flavor and richness of this holiday cookie.

White Chocolate Cherry Nut Cookies
Recipe Source:  Brandy Little

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz bag) Betty Crocker's sugar cookie mix, reserve 1/4 cup
16 oz. carton candied cherries, cut in half
1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
4 oz. Ghirardelli white chocolate chips
 7 oz. Ghirardelli white chocolate chips, melted

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Reserve 1/4 Cookie mix; set aside.  Prepared cookie mix according to package directions.

Toss cherries with remaining cookie mix; add pecans and white chocolate chips and toss until cherries, pecans, and white chocolate chips are coated well with cookie mix.

Fold in prepared cookie dough until well blended being careful not to mash the cherries as much as possible.

Using a 1-inch scoop, scoop and drop cookie dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies are set and still pale in color.  Do not over bake.

Remove from the oven and let set 5 minutes, and then remove cookies onto a rack to cool. When cookies are cool, drizzle with white chocolate. Makes 2 dozen.
