There’s something about using real cranberries in recipes that just screams fall and winter baking! These big chocolate chip cranberry cookies are made with real cranberries and are my new favorite cookie for the holidays.
As soon as my husband saw these cookies, he said “you made big cookies”!
For years he’s been telling me about these big cookies they sell at his work.
They’re the size of your hand, and are just awesome (he’s brought me one home to try).
I have a big scoop that I usually use for muffins (like these gingerbread cranberry muffins) and as I was making the dough for these chocolate chip cranberry cookies and going to reach for the normal cookie scoop I use, I saw the big one and thought I’d give it a try.
I am so glad I did, because I think these cookies work perfectly as big cookies.
They’re super delicious.
The cookies have a great texture, where they’re soft in the middle. The real cranberries give the perfect tart contrast to the sweet chocolate chips.
These chocolate chip cranberry cookies are perfect for the winter, and are a great winter baking recipe!
