    I made this by weighing ingredients, followed recipe exactly. These cookies are not sweet whatso ever and the texture is more cakey in sort of a way. They also start burnung on the bottoms before getting golden. I baked two batches hoping that someting would change with adjusting temperatures, or pressing flatter, and no they did not work for me. I wanted to give them to my youngest grandson for school cookies, but I am sure that he will not like them either. Sorry . Froze the rest of the balls I had ready, just have to figure out what to do with it now. Maybe a crumb topping for a crisp or something.

    I reduced the recipe to 24 cookies and got 26 good sized ones. Last time I went shopping I had picked up some cherry flavored cranberries so thats what I used here and they came out wonderfully. They have that great almost flaky texture that almost melts in your mouth. This recipe is going into my Christmas book. :D

    Absolutely wonderful! I used white chocolate chips instead of chopped chocolate to save a bit of time. Also, butter here comes in 454 g blocks and so that's what I used. The cookies didn't spread a lot, probably due to the slightly smaller amount of butter. I needed to bake them 11 minutes and ended up with a bit over 100 cookies.

    Bikkies from Heaven is right. These are absolutly Divine cookies. I cut the recipe an half and got 3 1/2 dozen. They are a wonderfully tender buttery bikkie. Next time I will add a bit more crasins. I added a bit of freshly grated nutmeg to the last bit of dough. VERY nice addition. These will be made over and over again and are going in my Divine book for 2009. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag

    Well, I can't tell you how many this recipe makes, either, 'cause I quite counting after 55 & was still going strong! They were a bit of work to make, what with all that rolling, but enjoyable as long as I wasn't pushed to do other things! Loved the combo of cranberries & white chocolate (I realize that some people don't, but then some people are weird, IMHO!) Will be keeping your recipe around to make again! Thanks for sharing!
