So easy to make! They were the first cookie gone off my rather large cookie tray this Christmas.
I AM glad I tried this recipe! It was a creative use of the can of cranberry sauce I had left over from Thanksgiving. I made one batch without icing but I think it is better with. One word of advice: When adding the cranberry, make sure to only add 1 CUP and not one CAN, as I did at first. Also, these were better with mini chocolate chips mixed in (I made them w/o icing when I added the choc. chips). Thanks, DiB!
