Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cookies

I’ve been trying to be good, trying to avoid the temptation to bake (and eat) as many cookies as possible – since it is that time of the year.  However when I saw the /52weeksofcooking challenge required the use of cranberries I could resist making a sweet treat.  Many moons ago I worked at a certain coffee chain known for serving a cranberry bar that one might describe as blissful.  My original plan was to recreate those bars in a cookie form, but that was before embarking on a journey to find white chocolate chips – a journey that was unsuccessful.  So I decided to do a very scientific taste test to see what type of chip would go best with the dried cranberries.  In the end I went with milk chocolate chips, with dark chocolate chips winning first runner-up (butterscotch and semi-sweet were the other competitors).


I still plan to try these again with the white chocolate chips, for scientific reasons of course!
