Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat baking sheets with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper; set aside. Place cranberries in a small bowl; add enough boiling water to cover. Let stand for 5 minutes; drain well. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in drained cranberries and white chocolate. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
  2. In a small bowl, combine egg white, sour cream, and milk. Add egg white mixture all at once to flour mixture. Using a fork, stir until combined.
  3. Drop dough by well-rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and tops are set. Transfer biscuits to wire racks; cool completely.
