Cranberry Cookies


By Lori Taylor

A great cookie for winter!

Do you have a Christmas party or cookie swap to attend this holiday season? Bring Cranberry Cookies and watch them get gobbled up!

Cranberry Cookies have everything you want in a cookie. They are soft and sweet. The cranberries add a little zing to each bite. We have suggested semi-sweet chocolate chips and roasted soy nuts, but you could also use white chocolate chips, dark chocolate chunks, walnut pieces, or pecan pieces.
