Always the first to go on my cookie tray this year. I thought they had a lot of flavors going on. Made half and used an 8x8 pan to bake.
Very good. First time making them, took them to church for fellowship this morning. Received alot of positive compliments, and actually... they look IDENTICAL to your picture :) Thanks for posting
These were a wonderful treat. I love the combination of cranberries and chocolate. These would be great for the holidays.
