dailydelicious: Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

When making cookies I always want to put a lot of chocolate or dried fruit into the dough.

Sometimes I don’t know that do I really want to eat the cookie or the chocolate that I add into it, haha.

When adding a lot of nut or chocolate chip into the iced box cookie (the cookie that you have to shape into a log, then cut into pieces), the problem that I (and many people) face is the cookie will be crack as the chocolate chip (or anything that you add into the dough) become harden after freezing. So I think that if we love the taste of it, it’s not wrong to change the method for shaping it.

This time I shaping the cookie by dividing it into a ball, then shaping it by pressing into a round cutter instead of cutting it. With this method, you will get cute cookies without any problem. 

Anyway, you may have to adjust to suit your cookie dough, for this recipe, I refrigerate the dough so it will be easier to handle ^^.

You can use the basic recipe and create many variations by using other kinds of dried fruit, nut, or chocolate too.
