Yummy cookie. Did make a few changes after reading the reviews. I used 1cup of butter instead of 1/2 cup butter & 1/2 cup shortening and decreased the amount of chocolate chips cranberries and nuts. And omitted the white chips all together - because of personal preference. Very good, very easy and made enough to freeze for later.

Easy and delicious. Didn't want to add the chocolate taste so just used all white chips. I'll make these again for the Holidays next year.

These cookies are very good. I used all butter instead of half butter, half shortening. They cookies were moist and delicious and all the guests at my dinner party raved about them.

This is an excellent Christmas/Winter cookie. Delightfully good! My family loved them especially with a hot cup of coffee or tea. I made them with and without nuts to take to a Christmas party at work today. Rave reviews and not one left. Several asked for the recipe. Easy too. Makes a few more than 70. I found 11 minutes was perfect using a stone baking sheet.

This is a wonderful cookie - I made according to the recipe and liked the abundance of chips, cranberries and nuts. I used butter flavored shortening. Will keep this one handy for future cookie baking.

These are so good! We like them better without vanilla chips (or with less) and with mini chocolate chips (and a smaller amount of them) to cut down on the chocolate a bit, but with even a few more cranberries thrown in!
