Reviews for Quick Cranberry Chip Cookies
"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."
"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."
"These are so good! We like them better without vanilla chips (or with less) and with mini chocolate chips (and a smaller amount of them) to cut down on the chocolate a bit, but with even a few more cranberries thrown in!"
"I WOULD make these cookies again, if only I get them them to turn out correctly! I have tried this recipe at least 3 different time, and each time they do not turn out. Once in the oven, everything goes wrong, and nothing seems to remedy this. Each time I make them, I anticipate that they will turn out, but so far something seems to have been wrong. :-("
"I brought a different type of cookie each week to a workshop I was attending. Out of 5 types of cookies this was the handsdown favorite! I used 1 cup of butter instead of the butter/shortening mix, and left the nuts out because it was in a school (nut allergies). Rich, flavorful, DELICIOUS!!!!"
"I made these for Thanksgiving at work and at home. Everyone loved them. I made the recipe as is for the first batch to work. My husband was not so sure about them. he said they were too fruity, so for the 2nd batch I halved the chips, pecans, and cranberries. They were much better and more of a cookie than fruit and nuts with a cookie shell. Still great and I will make them again. I am going to try these for a cookie exchange with cherries and see how that turns out."
"These are a great alternative to regular old chocolate chip cookies - very good!"
"My daughter is home from college and decided to make these cookies. They are very tasty, easy to make & have a wonderful texture!!!"
