      I think this may have been the first time I've made cookies EVER, so bearing that in mind.... Growing up, my best friend's mother used to make these - so I had an end product in mind. I thought the mixture was a bit dry for molding into cigars and I ended up refrigerating it overnight (due to laziness/rather than two hours). I used dried cranberries and walnuts and chopped them up too small, texture-wise. But.....everyone LOVED my cookies. I will definitely make them again.
