    This has become my signature cookie for the season

    Kris Kringle cookies

    Santa’s favorite

    Ingredients
    1 whole large egg, at room temperature
    1 large egg yolk, at room temperature (separate the egg while it’s cold)
    1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
    2 cups flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup [1 1/2 sticks] unsalted butter, melted
    1 cup packed light brown sugar
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1 cup white chocolate chips or chunks
    3/4 cup shelled pistachios (sieve to remove any “dust”)
    3/4 cup cherry-flavored dried cranberries

    Method
    Heat oven to 325°. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

    Crack the whole egg into a small dish. Add the egg yolk and the vanilla extract; set aside.

    Set a sifter over a small bowl or rest on a piece of wax or parchment paper. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and sift together; set aside.

    In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in white chocolate, pistachios and dried cranberries.

    Drop cookie dough by the tablespoon measure onto prepared cookie sheets. Turn the measured dough over to see which side has the most add-ins showing and put that side up. Place anything that might escape on top. Cookies should be about 2 inches apart. I get 6 cookies on a half-sheet baking pan.

    Bake for 6 minutes. Turn pans back to front and top to bottom and bake 5 1/2 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before sliding parchment with cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

    Store cookies air-tight. To ensure next-day freshness, put a slice of bread in the container with the cookies.

    Makes 2 1/2 dozen.

    In a large bowl combine ingredients on low speed of mixer about 1 minute. Blend well. Gradually add flour at low speed until just combined; stir in nuts. Roll dough into 1 inch balls; place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 F for 8-10 minutes until firm to the touch but not brown. Do not overbake. While warm, roll in powdered sugar. Cool; re-roll in powdered sugar before serving.
