Cranberry Sugar Cookies with Chocolate

November 22, 2011

                   

Cranberries.  A Thanksgiving staple.  It will be served at a million different dinners this Thursday. In a million different varieties. 

We always had the jellied cranberries when I was growing up. Yep, the good ole' canned version.  I'm not even sure if anybody ate them. It was just served because, it was Thanksgiving. You can't have Thanksgiving without cranberries!  (This is according to my sister and my mother).

Here's the thing....I don't particularly care for cranberries.  They are OK, but, Mr Plain and the kids don't eat them at all...so, we don't eat them here.  

Now, that has all changed.  I am learning...if you put it in a cookie, my children will eat it.  They may not always like it, but, they will grab it and  chomped into without a thought.  These..they like. Alot.

Do they know there are cranberries in them?  No. My 4 yr old told me these were awesome chocolate chip cookies. What they don't know, right? 

Off to find to broccoli cookie recipe. :)

  1. Well if they like them and they do not like cranberries, I definitely will enjoy them. I love cranberries and the dried ones are so addictive to me. The dipping in chocolate is a nice touch. Your picture of them sure does look tasty. Have a great Thanksgiving!
