    They look delicious. I love cranberries. I just have more dried than fresh or frozen right now.

    I’ve made these 2 times in the past (over a year ago). But, I always made substitutes with soy flour, mixtures of sugar replacers, etc. This time, I followed the recipe to a T and they came out so nice. I liked them before, but these are just delicious.

      So glad you love them, Mel! I’ve been stuck on a chocolate chip, or molasses cookie craze so these have gotten pushed aside!
