As you mix these up you'll wonder how the dough will ever hold together. It's like lots of "stuff" with a little bit of cookie dough. Skeptical as I was, I plodded on, and was rewarded with a real treat. I used a mixed berry blend for the dried cranberries, only because it's what I had on hand. I used a premium white chocolate which I believe makes an incredible difference, as does toasting the pecans (350 degrees, about 5 minutes - really worth this extra step). Beautiful, colorful, buttery rich and delicious cookie, loaded with chunks of creamy white chocolate, red berries (whatever kind you decide to use) and the toasted pecans. Baker's, you've come up with another good one!

I've been making these cookies for awhile now and thay are great just as the recipe is. But if you want them to be SUPERB, try adding the zest of one orange and 1c. quick oats. I also just use a bag of white chocolate chips instead of chopping chunks, saves time and I like the chunks to be more uniform. I have never made these and not gotten multiple requests for the recipe. Definately a family favorite in our house!!

Excellent recipe! I used white chocolate chips to avoid having to chop squares. I used a dark non stick coated cookie pan, and I should have turned the heat down by 10 degrees as my first batch was overdone a little. The second batch I cooked at 365 and moved the oven rack one up from the middle and they were perfect. I used walnuts and they were good, I'll try pecans next time - if they're on sale that is! The cookies don't spread as much as I thought they would, so you can put a little closer together.

My favorite homemade cookies! Usually make exactly to recipe but also sometimes substitute whole wheat flour, vegan "butter", etc and they're still yummy. Great mix of flavors and they're good chewy or crispy.

Wonderful cookies! I cut the recipe in half, used white chocolate chips, walnuts vs. pecans, added 2 tbsp. of orange juice and some orange zest. These were so buttery, crispy and packed full of holiday flavor!

These are perfect holiday cookies. Very good with lots of cranberries, chips, and nuts. Toasting the nuts is key and watch them so you don't overbake. Right out of the oven they just melt in your mouth.

definitely a keeper and not just for the holidays! I get a two thumbs up everytime I bake it. I just have to learn to make smaller cookies as I never get 72 of them out of the batter. My only suggestion is to use a dough hook when you are ready to put in the flower as it is very heavy.
