    Delightful cookies! The only tweak I made is, I filled one sheet using about half the cookie dough before I added a handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Judging by the way my husband gobbled up the cookies, I think he likes them quite well. I'll be making these often I'm sure.

    I added almond extract instead of vanilla, dried cherries and chocolate 87% cacao, the cacao was bitter so I increased sugar about 2tbl. Also added sliced almonds to half the batch. I also rolled dough into 4 wax paper logs and refrigerated for easy slicing and freezing.

    DO NOT mix the butter and sugar until fluffy. It makes the cookies more like light fluffy cake. These ARE NOT chewy at all, they're soft. Chewy cookies are like soft n chewy chocolate chip cookies, ie: the cookie dough part of the cookie is what is supposed to be chewy, NOT the cranberries/raisens or what other stuff you put in the cookie batter. Just mix till blended, you might get that cookie texture your looking for. The way the recipe instructs now, they're cake-cookies. These would be perfect for seniors since they're so soft(but omitt the chocolate)..

    These are nice and yummy! I like the cinnamon and it's great with so many cranberries. Will put into rotation. Thanks!

    Good cookies. Easy to make. I got 52 cookies. The first 18 baked for 10 minutes and I found them a little too soft. Baked the rest of the cookies for 12 minutes and that was perfect. They were then crispy at the edges and soft and chewy in the middle. Also, I replaced the cinnamon and vanila extract with 3 tsp ground ginger (we prefer ginger to cinnamon in cookies). Next time I make these I will skip the chocolate chunks and use all cranberries instead. They (the cranberries) "made" the cookies. Thanks for posting.
