When my husband came home from the grocery store with six bags of fresh cranberries, I launched a full scale effort to creatively use them all. Bursting with tart cranberry and sweet coconut flavor, these tasty bites are my favorite result from that experiment.

"These are wonderful cookies! They were especially enticing to me because I am gluten intolerant. I added more ground almonds and used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of the white. I also made them larger, so I needed to cook them longer. Thanks so much for the tasty recipe!"
