  • Heat oven to 375ºF.
  • Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter and sugars in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing well after each addition. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  • Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets.
  • Bake 9 to 11 min. or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 3 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

Size Wise

You'll know it is a special occasion when the aroma from this special treat fills the house.

Variation

Prepare as directed, replacing 6 oz. white chocolate with 6 oz. BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Baking Chocolate. Or, substitute chopped PLANTERS Walnuts or PLANTERS Slivered Almonds for the pecans; or chopped dried apricots or mixed dried fruit bits for the dried cranberries.

Special Extra

Place cookie dough on parchment-covered baking sheets to prevent cookies from sticking to pans and to help keep baking sheets clean between batches.

Freezing Cookie Dough

Enjoy homemade cookies anytime by preparing and freezing cookie dough in advance. For slice-and-bake cookies, shape dough into logs, double wrap in plastic wrap and freeze until ready to use. Then, just thaw, slice and bake. For drop cookies, shape dough into balls, then freeze on a baking sheet. Store in a freezer-weight resealable plastic bag until ready to use. Place frozen dough balls on baking sheets, thaw and bake. For cut-out cookies, pat dough into a disk, double wrap in plastic wrap and freeze. When ready to bake, just thaw the dough, roll out, cut into shapes and bake as directed.

How to Freeze Cookies and Brownies

Get a headstart on holiday baking (or any big baking occasion)! Bake multiple batches of cookies or brownies in advance and store them in the freezer. Cool cookies completely, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and place in airtight container or freezer-weight resealable plastic bag. Freeze up to 1 month. Thaw at room temperature. For best results, freeze uncut brownies and bar cookies. Cool completely, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then wrap again in foil. Freeze up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature before cutting into bars to serve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were the absolute BEST cookies. These were the absolute BEST cookies. We made them for a light dessert for a dinner party and everybody raved about them. Substituted semi sweet chocolate chips, walnuts and craisins. Even those people who said they didn't care for raisins were "fooled" by the craisins.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This recipe was very good and look festive. This recipe was very good and look festive. I made this for a Christmas Stroll and not a crumb was left. The best part it can be prepared with ingredients you have in the cabinet. I made it with the semi-sweet chocolate as that is my own preference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE these cookies! I LOVE these cookies! Use butter, not margerine or the texture is weird, and take the time to toast the pecans. The extra few minutes makes all the difference in flavor.
