Cranberry Cookies

Cranberry Cookies

I love Cranberries. They are tart, sassy and need a whole lot of sweetening. 

I always buy bags of them around Christmas time because, well…I don’t know, maybe because it's cranberry season. 

Now what does one do with bags of Cranberries? Well, bake with them of course!
