My kids absolutely love these. I've made them several times now, and the best way seems to be after I've made a few adjustments. (not because it's bad the original way, just because I try to use less sugar and fat.) I doubled this recipe, and used half sugar, and half splenda. I cut half the butter as well, and used applesauce in it's place. I didn't have fresh cranberries on hand, so instead I used dried. Rather than throwing them in as they were though, I soaked them in boiling water for about 5 minutes, so that they softened and puffed up. Then I drained them, and threw them in. I've done this before when baking other cookies that called for cranberries. It does a LOT for bringing out the flavour of the cranberries. We also used lime once instead of lemon. Just as good:) This one is a keeper!
