I received these delightful cookies for Christmas a few years ago. I was watching my diet, but I couldn't stay away from them! The tart cranberries blend beautifully with the sweet chocolate and vanilla chips. —Jo Ann McCarthy, Canton, Massachusetts

"These were wonderful"

"Yummy cookie. Did make a few changes after reading the reviews. I used 1cup of butter instead of 1/2 cup butter & 1/2 cup shortening and decreased the amount of chocolate chips cranberries and nuts. And omitted the white chips all together - because of personal preference. Very good, very easy and made enough to freeze for later."

"Easy and delicious. Didn't want to add the chocolate taste so just used all white chips. I'll make these again for the Holidays next year."
