Reviews for Cranberry Pecan Cookies
"Don't let the simplicity of this recipe turn you off, these are gourmet cookies! Not only did they look beautiful with it's overflowing mix-ins but the rich taste was outstanding. They also make a great bar dessert. Simply put into greased 11 x 13 glass pan, bake 350 degrees about 20 minutes. Keep a close on it so it doesn't over bake. They look fabulous on a dessert table!Update: Have made these using one box of Krusteaz Sugar cookie Mix. Equally wonderful."
"Awesome!! And soooo easy!!"
"This is a great fast recipe my entire family loved! It also freezes well! I've made it several times and it was a big hit at the family reunion!"
"Made these cookies today, but made them using a 3-lb. tub of cookie dough which I had purchaed from the bakery dept. Since I used a 3-lb tub of cookie dough, I added 2-1/2 tsp of vanilla extract, 1-1/2 cups of ivory white chips, then divided the dough in half, and to one half I added 3/4 cup of dried cranberries, and to the other, I added 3/4 cup of dried cherries, and to both halves I added, 3/4 cup of chopped pecans. I used my Pampered Chefmedium scoop (2 tablespoon scoop) to make each cookie, then I rolled each into a dough ball, and then flattened each somewhat onto a Pampered Chef Stoneware to bake the cookies. Baked the cookies exactly for 15 minutes. Mmm, both kinds of cookies tasted good, but personally I think I prefer the dried cranberries over the dried cherries. Louise, these cookies were very good, and I'd like to thank you for the recipe."
