I bought some Belgian semi-sweet chocolate chunks from Aldi’s. They have delicious chocolate and it’s not pricey. It gave the cookies a little bit of a different texture.
I bought the cranberries at Publix, and I got the dried and sweet cranberries from Fresh Gourmet.
They are actually a salad topping, also.
I added four ounces to the cookies, but you can always double that if you’d like to.
Mix the ingredients.
Roll the cookies onto a cookie sheet and set about two inches apart. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown.
