Reviews for Winning Cranberry Chip Cookies
"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!"
"I am making these again right now... I took them to my family gathering and had good reviews. I love the chocolate chip mixed with green mints, it adds a nice Christmas flavor AND color. They are my new chocolate chip cookie!! Thanks a bunch!"
