Many of the cookies I post on the blog are made for events at school, gift giving or to take to a friend “just because”. My family and I certainly can’t eat all these goodies ourselves. I made these chunky cranberry double chip cookies for our school’s annual cookie extravaganza. It’s held each year in December and faculty and staff get to pick out cookies for a take home box as a way for parents to say thank for all you do. I’d say 90% of the cookies donated are homemade but some do purchase and that’s OK. It’s all about saying thanks to those who teach and care for our kids.

I’ve made cookies for this event before and a favorite of ours (and the teachers) is the Andes creme de menthe chunk cookies. I always like to make a new cookie each year. From what I heard these cookies were well received.

It seems I may have a bit of a theme going on though. This isn’t the first cranberry cookie on the blog. If you like oatmeal cookies you’ll enjoy oatmeal, cranberry and white chocolate chip cookies.

If you make these cookies and enjoy them, you may want to change them up the next time. A bit of orange zest would be nice because orange goes well with both cranberry and chocolate. You could also substitute dried cherries for the cranberries. Treat them the same way with the water.

I used a fairly big scoop and got exactly 3 dozen cookies. You can see they are a pretty good size. If you use a smaller scoop you’ll get more, maybe closer to 4 or 4 1/2 dozen.
