Let’s talk cookies, shall we? This was my second year participating in The Great Food Blogger’s Cookie Swap. The idea is simple. You sign up, donate a few dollars to charity, mail out a dozen cookies to three different people and get three dozen cookies in the mail. Although this year was a bit of a bust on the return end for me – I only got cookies from one person instead of three- I still had fun baking and sending mine out!
I was having a tough time coming up with a totally new cookie to try, but after much deliberation, I decided to do something a little crazy! I used FRESH cranberries…in cookies. Cranberry peanut butter cookies. And guess what? They’re delish!
Here’s how you make them:
Aren’t they just so pretty and festive?!
I revisited this recipe in 2015 and made a few tweaks and they turned out even better than I remember! To see the original recipe, please see the notes section of the recipe above.
These Cranberry Peanut Butter Cookies would make a great addition to your holiday baking list! And then i’d highly recommend you use the leftover cranberries to make a batch of my favorite Fresh Cranberry Sauce! Good on so many things!
