"I can't count how many times I have made these cookies--they are our favorites," says Carmen Rae from New Haven, Indiana. "I love to bake all kinds of goodies with my two daughters, and my husband loves to sample the treats."
Most people don’t realize that these cookies are low in fat. You actually get more than 2 dozen of the treats from a cake mix and just four other common ingredients. —Melanie Van Den Brink of Rock Rapids, Iowa
"I love the combination of cranberries and chocolate, particularly in this recipe," says Dayton, Washington's Ann Michelson. "You can substitute dried cherries for the cranberries. And you can also make drop cookies instead of bars."
As rosy pink as Santa's cheeks, these merry meringue cookies are drizzled with dark chocolate and almost too pretty to eat. Pecans add a nice crunch to these chewy treats. They lend a "berry" festive touch to my Christmas cookie tray.
