Recipe by Old widow

I love these cookies and make them every Christmas. I do not really remember where I got the recipe. I love the combination of chocolate and cranberry or cherry.

Great cookies. This batch gave me 27 cookies and they needed 15 minutes in the oven. The dough was very stiff but still pliable. I didn't flatten them, just dropped them by rounded tablespoons, they spread out nicely and made large cookies. The combination of chocolate and dried cranberries (which I used) is indeed very nice, both flavours could be tasted. Indeed, very good cookies.
Thanks for posting.
