Very good. Next time I will heat the cranberries and oj, then let it cool. This should help to get more orange flavor into the cookie.

I like the combination of chocolate and cranberries, but while some recipes are too sweet and others border on health food, this recipe is just right. Yummy. White chocolate gives a subtle sweetness to these cookies, but I think dark chocolate chips (semisweet are OK) best complement the orange flavored cranberries and thus create a bigger wow factor. I use the Ghirardelli cocoa chips - when on sale - which are extra large and also make the cookies slightly larger so that the chocolate isn't overpowering. Time saving tip: Buy packaged orange flavored cranberries. Trader Joe's sells an 8 oz bag for the reasonable price of $2.00 (and the leftover cranberries make a tasty midday snack at work.) Thanks for the great recipe! Not only are they a family favorite, but they also make a great gift for the winter holidays.

These were delicious -- I substituted chopped dark chocolate for the white chocolate, threw in some raisins (because I didn't have enough cranberries), and left the dried fruits to stew in the warmed orange juice for closer to an hour. I left them in the oven for a little longer, maybe more like 15 minutes, because they seemed especially gooey. (That may be because I used margarine (ew) instead of butter.) Oh -- I also threw in some flax seed for good measure and a bit of oat cereal that I wanted to get rid of, so mine were a bit crunchy, but I like that.

So yummy! I used regular chocolate chips. Very good. :)

I also warmed the OJ and it made a stronger orange flavor in the cookies. They needed to bake for about 12-14 mins, probably because the dough was a bit moist from the OJ. Overall - very delicious cookies and quick to prepare. I will make these again for sure!

These are good. I substituted 1/2 c whole wheat flour for all-purpose and used semi-sweet chocolate chips. The were fabulous when they came out of the oven, but didn't keep as well as some other cookies. The only thing I would change next time is to either make more dough or reduce the extras (cranberries, chocolate chips). The ratio wasn't quite right.
