Even after refrigerating for the two hours, my logs turned out too soft to just slice and place. I ended up making one inch balls instead but they still turned out fine. I just won't bother refrigerating next time but will just place on parchment, by the tablespoonful.Excellent taste althought I believe I will omit the chocolate chips next time and I did use plain Skors bits.

I did not care for this recipe and will not make it again. I think there are too many flavors (cranberries, chocolate chips and toffee) for any one flavor to stand out. I am glad others like it.

a definate keeper. I noticed someone said the cookies were chewy- it depends on when you take thm out of the oven. I left them intill golden all over- and they were crisp and buttery. 2 minutes earlier would have given a chewy texture. I only had 1/2 c chocolate chips o hand- and it was great. A great crisp, buttery cookie

Nice combination of sweet and tart. Think next time I may add half again as much cranberries. However this is definitely a keeper!

This cookie had a unique combo of ingredients which is what my family loved. I didn't have the time to roll the dough into logs and refrigerate it, so I just scooped it right from the mixing bowl onto the cookie sheet. Parchment paper is a must for this cookie and with it, they didn't stick at all! The cookies turned out just fine without refrigerating them first. The only thing I changed was the amount of the cranberries, choc chips, and toffee bits. I didn't think the batter could hold a cup of each, so I did a half cup instead, which was just fine. I will definitely make again!

Delicious flavour; I too used plain toffee bits. I think the chocolate ones would provide too much chocolate. I didn't believe that 1/2" thickness was right - seemed very thick for a fridge cookie. However, cutting thinner makes for a very thin, lacy cookie that falls apart - these really spread out as they bake. Perhaps I greased my sheets too much. I also found that I had to let them cool a minute or too on the sheet before I could remove them without them falling apart. Too long, however, they stick to the sheet. In spite of this, I would make these again for the flavour. They will be on our Christmas board this year and, I'm sure, be appreciated.

Delicious and easy recipe. I used dried cherries rather than the cranberries and they were a big hit.
