Toffee Cranberry Crisps

I've had more friends request this recipe than any other cookie recipe I have. The combination of cranberries, chocolate chips and toffee bits is wonderful. —Ann Quaerna, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin

    Even after refrigerating for the two hours, my logs turned out too soft to just slice and place. I ended up making one inch balls instead but they still turned out fine. I just won't bother refrigerating next time but will just place on parchment, by the tablespoonful.Excellent taste althought I believe I will omit the chocolate chips next time and I did use plain Skors bits.

    I did not care for this recipe and will not make it again. I think there are too many flavors (cranberries, chocolate chips and toffee) for any one flavor to stand out. I am glad others like it.

    a definate keeper. I noticed someone said the cookies were chewy- it depends on when you take thm out of the oven. I left them intill golden all over- and they were crisp and buttery. 2 minutes earlier would have given a chewy texture. I only had 1/2 c chocolate chips o hand- and it was great. A great crisp, buttery cookie

    Nice combination of sweet and tart. Think next time I may add half again as much cranberries. However this is definitely a keeper!

    This cookie had a unique combo of ingredients which is what my family loved. I didn't have the time to roll the dough into logs and refrigerate it, so I just scooped it right from the mixing bowl onto the cookie sheet. Parchment paper is a must for this cookie and with it, they didn't stick at all! The cookies turned out just fine without refrigerating them first. The only thing I changed was the amount of the cranberries, choc chips, and toffee bits. I didn't think the batter could hold a cup of each, so I did a half cup instead, which was just fine. I will definitely make again!

    Delicious flavour; I too used plain toffee bits. I think the chocolate ones would provide too much chocolate. I didn't believe that 1/2" thickness was right - seemed very thick for a fridge cookie. However, cutting thinner makes for a very thin, lacy cookie that falls apart - these really spread out as they bake. Perhaps I greased my sheets too much. I also found that I had to let them cool a minute or too on the sheet before I could remove them without them falling apart. Too long, however, they stick to the sheet. In spite of this, I would make these again for the flavour. They will be on our Christmas board this year and, I'm sure, be appreciated.

    Delicious and easy recipe. I used dried cherries rather than the cranberries and they were a big hit.
