Craisins Recipe Making Process
When you start making your Craisins recipe, get all your ingredients ready to be certain that you have everything. If you want, go ahead and eat some of your cranberries or pistachios right out of the bag. You should have purchased a bigger bag so you have some to snack, right?
Start with the dry ingredients. Whisk them together because you don’t want a lot of salt or a lot of baking soda hanging out in one spot of your cookies. Mix them up and set them aside.
- Baking Soda
In a separate bowl, mix your wet ingredients.
- Softened Butter
- Brown Sugar
- Vanilla Extract
Incorporate the dry ingredients, one cup at a time, into the wet ingredients. Mix well after each addition.
If you dump everything in there at once, you may end up with flour all over you face, clothes and countertop. Ask me how I know.
Here is where the fun begins. You can’t have a Craisins recipe without the Craisins, of course!
It’s recommended that you hand stir your extras so you don’t break them up.
- Ocean Spray Craisins
- Wonderful No Shell Pistachios
You have more of a chance of breakage if you’re using delicate extras. If you decide to use the mixer, you’ll get no judgment from me!
This recipe makes about 45 cookies using the 1 1/2 inch cookie scoop. Do you have a cookie scoop?
I highly recommend them. You get uniform cookie sizes and you can get finished so quickly!
