Chock-full of cranberries, chocolate chips and nuts, these cookies are fun to eat. They offer a change of pace from traditional Christmas cookies...but don't wait until December to make them. My family requests them all year-round.

"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."

"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."

"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!!"

"That's a lot of flavor to pack into one cookie. Do you think I could use just the toffee or just the chocolate with the cranberries?"
