"Simple yet delicious edition to my Christmas cookie tray! I used butter flavored shortening."
"I cut back on the nuts a little."
"These cookies are very good. I used all butter instead of half butter, half shortening. They cookies were moist and delicious and all the guests at my dinner party raved about them."
"This is an excellent Christmas/Winter cookie. Delightfully good! My family loved them especially with a hot cup of coffee or tea. I made them with and without nuts to take to a Christmas party at work today. Rave reviews and not one left. Several asked for the recipe. Easy too. Makes a few more than 70. I found 11 minutes was perfect using a stone baking sheet."
"This is a wonderful cookie - I made according to the recipe and liked the abundance of chips, cranberries and nuts. I used butter flavored shortening. Will keep this one handy for future cookie baking."
