Weigh out the ingredients
You'll need flour, brown sugar, sugar, butter, baking powder, salt, egg, vanilla, white chocolate, and cranberries.
Cream the butter & sugars
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars for 2-3 minutes until light & fluffy.
Beat in the egg and vanilla until fully combined.
Add egg & vanilla
Scrape down the bowl, then add the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until just combined.
Mix in the dry ingredients
Fold in the roughly chopped white chocolate and dried cranberries with a rubber spatula until evenly distributed.
Fold in white chocolate & cranberries
Using a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop, portion the dough onto a small parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze for 30 minutes.
Portion & freeze
Place the frozen cookie dough balls on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes until barely golden on the edges. Once the cookies come out of the oven, immediately top each of them with more white chocolate, if desired. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheet.
