      We just made these delicious cookies, followed the recipe adding 1 tbsp of butter. I did mix the cranberries and chips with my hand and dough was fine. Will add to my recipe box and I'm sure I will be making another batch before Christmas.

      This is a great cookie recipe. I used craisins and almond bark. They are light, moist and yummy when served the same day they are made. I would not recommend making them a day ahead of time.
