I'm about to make this but only have fresh cranberries, will these work instead of dried? please help
Today is the second time I made these cookies and they came out as perfect and as delicious as the first time. They are a real hit and easy to make. I get about 6 dozen cookies using a 1.25 inch cookie scoop; bake up to a perfect size. I also opt for semi-sweet chocolate chips which complement the dried cranberries really well.
This recipe is perfect. Made these cookies for the first time at Thanksgiving. They were a huge hit. Made them again at Christmas and gave as gifts. Everyone wants the recipe.
The first time I did the recipe to the T and the cookies were on the flat side, buttery, and super sweet. A good cookie! However, I made a couple changes the second time for a more mounded, chewy, and balanced cookie... (1) I replaced the 1/2c granulated sugar for a 1/2c fine-ground oats (better to do them yourself in a food processor than buy oat flour) - cream it with the butter (2) I did two whole eggs instead of the whole + yolk (3) I sprinkled a little kosher salt on the cookies right out of the oven.
These changes upgraded the recipe to delectable, in my opinion. Both versions were best closer to the 14 minute mark.
