we enjoyed them very much. A little heads up , this recipe does not spread so you get a lot of cookies on one baking sheet. If I had known that it would have saved some time. Love the pumpkin keep the recipes coming.

Bake Sale

These are very good. The cranberry adds just the right amount of tartness. I made them for a bake sale and they were gone in no time. The baking time is a little longer than most cookies, just be sure to plan accordingly.
