What you’ll need
4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Dash of salt
2 cups butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
12 ounces white chocolate chips
12 ounces dried blueberries
2 packages dried cranberries
3-4 dozen cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit, if you’re using an oven. If you’re using an open fire, allow the fire to die down until the fire pit is filled with hot coals.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir slightly to combine.
Using an electric mixer, beat together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Once combined, beat in the eggs until they are fully incorporated. Slowly mix in the flour mixture and beat together slowly to avoid the flour spilling out of the mixer. Once the flour is completely incorporated, fold in the white chips, blueberries, and cranberries with a spatula until they are evenly combined.
Gather the dough into a ball and place it in your skillet. Press the dough down to reach all the edges and make sure the cookie is even and flat. If you’re using a smaller cast iron skillet, split the dough into 4 separate sections and bake one section at a time.
In an oven, bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. If you’re using an open fire allow the skillet to sit on the hot coals for about 20 minutes. You’ll get the best results if your skillet has a lid and you place a couple hot coals on top of the skillet cookie to create an oven affect.
Allow the cookies to cool before serving.
