Recipe Comments & Reviews

Tried this recipe because I had leftover dried cranberries. It was a great BIG hit at work and home - made my second batch tonight! I sifted the dry ingredients together; and preferred the end result of using cold butter instead of softened: the cookie didn't spread as much. Since the cookies are rolled in sugar and lend it a crystal texture on the outside, you would be hard pressed to know off the bat it has cornmeal. Have also tried it with orange-flavored dried cranberries with good results. Many liked it because the cookie was not too sweet; yet had a good texture and flavor to it. This is now in our top 5 everyday cookies list!
