It has suddenly started to feel like winter here in Ohio. We’ve had days of rain and even a few snowflakes. This is time of year when I start digging in the freezer for last year’s cranberries so we can cuddle up on the couch with cups of Cranberry Spice Tea! I saw a recipe similar to this one in a tiny holiday flip book on the counter of a local bulk food store years ago. It sounded delicious and I wanted to make it, but I could never find that little book or recipe again. The store is closed now but I’ve been making my Cranberry Spice Tea for several years now.

When it came down to it I told myself that other people would like it so just do it already. Well the joke’s on me because these cookies are fan-tas-tic!

This kind of cookie can easily be a little dry and bland so I wanted to avoid that from the start. In the summer issue of Bake from Scratch magazine they featured a section on how to bake the perfect chocolate chip cookie. There is a recipe for each type of cookie (crispy, cakey, chewy, etc) and a chart showing which ingredients are important to that cookie type. I decided to start from that chart and work my way up to the cookie I wanted.
