  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugars and medium-high speed until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Mix in the egg and brandy until fully incorporated.
  • In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, cornstarch, and baking soda. Add to the butter mixture and mix just until combined.
  • Fold in the white chocolate chips and craisins.
  • Use a medium cookie scoop to portion out the cookie dough 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the pan for a couple of minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


  1. Brandy adds a really lovely flavor to these cookies, but if you don't have it, substitute for 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  2. Cornstarch can be omitted if you don't have any on hand, however, it makes the cookies extra chewy.
  3. Fresh cranberries may also be used: Put the cranberries in a baking dish at 250 degrees F for 15 minutes to get them soft. Next, gently chop or leave whole and add to the batter.
