These are SO yummy! Like a cross between toffee and caramel. I usually have bad luck when making delicate cookies like this, but these turned out perfectly and were very easy to remove from the foil. Next time I will make them smaller (they spread a lot) and chop the nuts and cranberries into little pieces. Otherwise, WONDERFUL!!

I think these cookies are interesting and different. But yummy! I make mine a lot smaller than the recipe calls for. I will add more nuts and berries next time. Give it a try, its easy. I bake on parchment all the time and wouldn't want to try foil on this delicate cookie.
