Cranberry, White Chocolate & Macadamia Cookies

I love the McCormick website.  I find all kinds of good recipes there - and this one is no exception.  This is a new cookie that Emma and I added to our Christmas cookie list.  It's yummy and sure to be a hit!

2 cups flour
2 Tbsp McCormick Gourmet Collection Cinnamon, Saigon
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
4 tsp vanilla extract
8 oz white baking chocolate chopped (I used Nestle' White Chocolate Chips)
2 jars (6.85 oz) Macadamia nuts (chopped)
2 cups dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in small bowl.  Set aside.

Cream butter and sugars in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy.  Bea in egg and vanilla.  Gradually beat in flour mixture.  Stir in chocolate, nuts and cranberries.  Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls 1 1/2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake 12 - 15 minutes or until golden brown.

We're watching the budget this year, and many of our friends/guests will not eat nuts, so we left out the Macadamia nuts.  They were still excellent!
