Black Forest Cookies

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Martina

A soft cookie, that doesn't contain much flour. Our whole family loves these cookies. The recipe was found on the back of a package of OceanSpray Craisins.

The original craisins are a staple in my house, but my grocery store was out of them this week so I bought the cherry flavor instead. I didn't love them for munching, but the recipe for Black Forest Cookies on the back of the package looked delish so I whipped up a batch. I subbed semi-sweet chocolate chips and I'm glad I did because I think the cookies would have been too sweet with milk chocolate chips. Thank you for posting!
