White Chocolate Chip-Cranberry-Almond Cookies

I made a batch of these on a whim for my husband to take to his office mates. 

One of them declared them to be 'crack'.

Another offered to be my Santa Claus this year.

People from other areas were coming to partake of the crack cookie heaven.

So I am sharing with you all.

White Chocolate Chip-Cranberry-Almond Cookies aka "Crack"

2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter MELTED
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp of each: vanilla, almond extract and rum flavoring
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 325.  Sift flour, baking powder and salt.

Cream together melted butter and both types of sugar until well blended.  Beat in flavorings, egg and extra egg yolk until light and creamy.  Mix in sifted ingredients just until blended.  Stir in chocolate chips, cranberries and almonds.  Chill dough for 1 hour.

Roll out 1 inch balls of dough and place on cookie sheet.  Bake for 11-14 minutes, or until lightly golden around edges.

Let cool completely on the cookie sheet.

Be the most popular mom and wife this Christmas season.
