A while back, we had dried cranberries (or craisins) dipped in rich chocolate. They were scrumptious. We set about to create the same flavors in a chocolate chip cookie. We added some nuts to the recipe just for good measure and ended up with a real treat that wasn’t quite so decadent. This recipe belongs in your kitchen. These cookies are very good.
Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup dried cranberries
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts
Note: We prefer our super cranberries, cold-processed with more juice and less sweeteners but you may use any that you have available.
