What's in it


2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons pomegranate juice
1/4 cup pomegranate arils

How to cook it


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl with a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar on medium-high for 3 minutes, until smooth. Beat in the egg and the vanilla.
  • With the mixer on low, gradually beat in the dry ingredients until just combined – do not over-mix
  • Drizzle the pomegranate juice over your cookie dough, and gently fold with a spatula until you see a light lavender swirl.
  • Place rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough on ungreased cookie sheets, pressing down a bit to flatten
  • Add 8-10 pomegranate arils on top, pushing down gently on each one to nestle them into the dough.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown and the centers are baked. Let stand on cookie sheets for 1-2 minutes before transferring them to cool completely on a wire rack.
