Review This Recipe
These cookies are easy to make and very festive looking. I had to double my baking time, and I think this is because I used frozen cranberries. I do not like the ways these cookies smell (like playdough), but they taste pretty good. I also enjoyed these moist cookies more without the chocolate.
