Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe [Split from Quebec board]

Hello, here is the recipe for the cookies, I also saw your email somewhere on a post, I'll send it in case the move this post!

Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
2/3 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup milk
2 tbsp OJ
3 cups cranberries (sliced in half)
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts

Mix all the dry ingredients (except for the cranberries, choclate chips and walnuts) together well, or pulse in a food precessor. In a small bowl, beat the eggs together. In a large bowl (or a stand mixer) cream the butter briefly alone then add the sugars and continue to cream until the mixture lightens in texture. Gradually add the eggs to the sugar/butter mix (reduce speed to “stir” if using a stand mixer). Add the dry ingredients in three batches alternating with some of the milk, finish with the last of the milk and the O.J. Stir in the cranberries, chocolate chips and walnuts. Scoop cookies out onto a non-stick pan into small heaps (we use a cookie scoop.). If no non-stick pan, grease the baking pan.

Bake at 375F for 14-16 minutes.

  1. Yum - thanks for sharing this! Recipes seem to be removed from this board very rapidly - why not post this on Home Cooking to share it with all Chowhounders, and then post the link here. :-)

    Oh, and a question - should it be fresh or dried cranberries for this recipe? Thanks!

      Oops sorry, yes I like to use fresh cranberries for this, I have also successfully used frozen cranberries (just slice them when still frozen, then use as indicated). I think dried cranberries would work fine, but I really like the tart unsweetened quality of the fresh cranberries. If you used dried, i don't think I would add 3 cups, it would be overkill.

      Sorry, OJ is orange juice in case it's not evident.
