Cover a medium size jelly roll pan

(approximately 10” x 15”)

with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl add the

melted butter and brown sugar.

Beat with a mixer on

medium speed until mixed well.

Add the eggs and vanilla extract.

 

A9F9E20E-AA63-4D57-94F9-D4BF2903E367

Mix until combined.

 

E30097D5-90C8-47E0-B31E-A322738B0730

Add ground ginger,

baking powder, salt and flour.

 

40B0EF7E-E330-4F69-B2C6-F14FEA13C688

Beat on medium speed just until blended

and do not over mix. Then add the white

chocolate chips and Craisins and stir by hand.

 

1B799ACC-ACB5-4831-B596-5CBF16F5294C

Spread evenly into the

parchment paper lined pan.

 

2070819D-E1BB-47A4-8A89-821478930E14

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for

approximately 18-22 minutes. It will be a

golden brown on the edges and cooked

in the center. Place pan on cooling

rack and cool completely.

 

MAKE THE TOPPING

1A0EF280-ED77-4AF2-9DA3-A897A1C6BCDB

In a medium bowl add the

powdered sugar and cream cheese.

 

7FB2D77A-DAA0-4A13-95F5-5D92F1240F58

Beat until creamy then add the

vanilla extract and mix well.

 

97128C4D-E394-4E25-B3E1-6DF57CD572D7

on top of the cooled bottom layer.

 

C554EAD6-1468-4FB4-B300-BA26958AB688

Sprinkle the Craisins evenly over the top.

 

10DA31C2-9AD2-41CD-8527-8B4433FCCA4C

In a small saucepan over low heat melt

the white chocolate stirring constantly. Do

not overcook or it will turn lumpy. I always

add 1 Tbsp. of coconut oil for a better

drizzling consistency (any oil will work).

 

5B2EDBD0-E2F8-4FFE-A406-77F323163559

It will be smooth and creamy and able to

drizzle from a spoon. If it isn’t add more oil.

 

A3247A06-5E4F-42D8-BB04-3A10964D41DA

Using a spoon immediately drizzle the white

chocolate over the entire top. Place it in the

refrigerator and when set cut into triangles or

bars then serve. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
