Cranberry Choc Chip Cookies

by Tenina Holder

These impressive little munchies are so delicious when hot that I have never eaten them cold yet!

Another great thing to do with the mix, (if you are disciplined enough) is to roll half of it into baking paper in a long sausage, freeze it and then when in need of a quick fix, slice frozen and cook in hot oven or in Microwave Grill. If using the Microwave Grill 4 cookies will only take around 4 minutes. Fresh, hot cookies in 4 minutes! What more could a cookie junkie ask for? Grown Up Chocolate Chip Cookies
