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.

"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."

"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!!"

"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?"

"These cookies are GREAT with white chocolate chips, I recently made them that way. Another little touch that makes them even yummier is to toast the pecans after you chop them. It adds a really nice nutty flavor."

"I think these would be sooooo good with white chocolate chips instead of semisweet."
