Reviews forWinning Cranberry Chip Cookies
"With this recipe I didn't have enough semi-sweet available and put in white chocolate chips to make up the difference and still had very tasty results."
"Very good! I took them to church party. Everyone wanted the recipe."
"Somewhat dryer than I think of as a cookie."
"Really, Really good. However, the toffee bits were unnoticeable to me. A winner fur sure."
"These cookies are terrific. However, i did alter the recipe a bit the second time I made therm. Instead of using 1 cup of white sugar, I used 3/4 cp. white sugar and 3/4 cp. brown sugar. I feel it made the texture of the cookie much better and added the caramel color they were missing."
"Really tasty just the way they are!"
"These cookies are the best cookies ever! I made a batch and took them to work and they disappeared so fast I have had to promise to make more."
"I use white chips instead of chocolate, and leave out the toffee bits. Be sure to use real butter--it DOES make a difference! These are now my all time favorite cookies!!"
