I have made this recipe for years! They are always a big hit! I just make sure the dough is on the wetter side by adding vanilla and I under bake cookies as a rule and then freeze. Turn out amazing every time!
Fresh cranberries make the difference
I have had the moist issue with other recipes that call for Craizens - I usually use fresh cranberries that I pulse through a small food chopper/processor - pour in chopped cranberries and juice...it makes a difference!!
These cookies turned out absolutely delicious!
DELICIOUS - my go to recipe for years!!
I have enjoyed these cookies for years, love to make them with the kids and have made it numerous years for Christmas presents. I disagree with comments that's too dry. I personally prefer a mound and chewy type of a cookie. I dislike those that spread too much and become thin and crispy. That's why I love these cookies and they come out perfect every time. I do prefer to use a did bit less salt (1/4 tsp) and use fresh baking soda. I always get great compliments and recipe sharing requests!! Enjoy warm with milk or ice cream ;-)
Ok, after reading the reviews, I did tweak the cookies. I added a splash of milk, some vanilla and some nutmeg (i love my vanilla :D). The first little "test" batch spread a little too much for my liking, so i chilled the dough for about 20 minutes...the second batch was perfect! Very yummy too :)
