Reviews for Cranberry-Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
"These cookies are really wonderful! I used quart zip-lock bags, tied with beautiful ribbon, since I was making 24 of them for our women's group Christmas party at church. (I also tied in a small wooden spoon into each ribbon.) I used mini chocolate chips, all in one layer (instead of 2 layers according to the directions) and cut the amount down from 1 cup to 1/2 cup total, chopped the cranberries and used 1/3 cup per recipe, chopped walnuts fairly small and used 1/3 cup per recipe. VERY IMPORTANT: I also added 2 tablespoons of water, which made a HUGE difference.!!! My first pan was way too dry and crumbly, did not flatten or spread. I added 1 tablespoon water (since I only had half the dough left) and it made a huge difference. I ALSO flattened each cookie some. They spread and were perfect! The amount of chocolate chips is just right; adding the mini-chips makes them go farther and I honestly did not miss the other 1/2 cup of chips! Making this many recipes was quite an investment and I thought I could cut corners just a little by reducing expensive chocolate chips, walnuts and dried cranberries. It worked just fine!! LOVE THESE!!"
"Excellent cookie the only thing I had to change was to add a little water to get it all mixed"
