    I added the vanilla as other reviewers suggested but still thought the batter was missing something. I added abt 1/2 tsp orange flavoring and that was it! It was enough to "wake up" the cookie base and was a great compliment to the cranberry and chocolate. I also added 1 c pecan pieces for crunch. These freeze and travel well.  -  26 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I've made 2 batches in a week. I added 2 tablespoon of vanilla and about 1 tsp of cinnamon. I made half the batch with about 1/4 cup of walnuts.They are not real sweet which I like. They are best right out of the oven while they are still warm and the white chocolate is still melted.Ummmm! My husband loves them as well as my 1 1/2 year old. I made half the batch without walnuts for them. I am a nut person so I think they are best with the walnuts added. I made these last night for family members and everyone raved over these cookies. They all wanted the ones with the walnuts. I got this recipe the first time from the back of the dried cranberry package. It was thrown away not knowing what a hit they would be, so I went online and found this. I'm saving it this time.  -  29 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These cookies did need the added vanilla. I also used fresh cranberries, and found that cooking them for 12 minutes was too much--8 minutes was better.  -  28 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
