Would make this again.
The cookies turned out amazing! I took them to work and they all loved it! Making some right now so that they can enjoy it again. haha hope these turn out great too. I ran out of cranberries so I decided to use raisins in them. Hopefully they turn out good because I would be really mad. 5 stars

Would not make this again.
This was probably the most disappointing recipe I have ever made cookie-wise. Followed the direction exactly and they turned out like little hockey pucks....very very dry. I would not use these in the cookie trays I make for my neighbors, ended up throwing them away.
I think it was possibly that I used dried cranberries rather than fresh, however the recipe said that you could.
Anyone have any ideas ?
