"The secret to these cookies is the melted white chocolate in the cookie dough itself!"
That's what you'll be able to tell people when you get compliments on these cookies. They taste just how a cookie should--sweet and buttery, soft and chewy--with that little something you can't quite put your finger on. That "something" is melted white chocolate. Need I say more?

2) In a large bowl, combine butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in egg, followed by vanilla and melted white chocolate.
3) Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing until just incorporated. Stir in white chocolate chips and dried cranberries.
