Reviews for Cranberry Nut Cookies
"I just made these cookies they are so yummy, easy to make and they taste great"
"I made these yesterday and used a food chopper for the cranberries. Love the cookies and this will be a keeper for the holidays."
"Excellent cookie. Had to modify a bit due to lack of some of the ingredients, eliminated the ground nuts. I used fresh frozen cranberries that I frozen when I got a bunch on sale. Wanting a little spice I added a tsp of Saigon cinnamon. If I don't hide them they will be gone by nightfall."
"I love these cookies and can't wait to make them with fresh cranberries. First year I made them I chopped them in half. TEDIOUS. Second year, I used the food processor to just quickly chop them up. They were just as good. People now request these cookies. I also use pecans instead of walnuts, just prefer them."
"When I started cutting the cranberries in half I already was talking myself out of making these again. Took me a good 1/2 hour just to do that tedious task. Actually though they had a very nice tart taste to them. These make pretty large cookies. Make sure you space 2 in. apart."
