1 package of fresh cranberries (In a food processor, pulse all of the fresh cranberries)

Chopped Fresh Cranberries

Directions

Whisk together in a large bowl, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Use Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer to create two egg replacements. Follow instructions on the package.

Use a dough paddle in a large mixing bowl, cream butter, and cream cheese, with sugar, vanilla extract, and egg replacement.

Switch to a dough hook, and slowly add in dry ingredients on low speed. Push the dough into the center as it climbs up the sides of the bowl until combined.

Next, add the macadamia nuts, white chocolate chips, and ONLY 1/2 of the cranberries. The other half of the cranberries used in decorating before baking.
When all dough is combined. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and refrigerate for an hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Place some parchment paper on a baking sheet.

Place dough on parchment paper in batches and roll out to a thickness of a quarter of an inch. Using a two-inch cookie cutter, cut dough and place cookies at least two inches apart. Decorate with a few extra cranberries before baking.

Before Baking

Bake cookies for ten to thirteen minutes. Then let cookies cool on the baking sheet for five minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
