Cranberry Decadent Cookies
The measurements below are correct! Like all cookies, these are scrumptious hot
out of the oven, but they will instantly fall apart if touched before they are
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. baking powder
6 Tbsp. butter -- softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate -- chopped
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup dried cranberries
1 pinch salt
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease large cookie sheets. Melt semi-sweet chocolate and
cool. Combine dry ingredients: flour, cocoa, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
In a large bowl, cream butter. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add
eggs and beat until smooth. Stir in melted chocolate. Add dry ingredients and
mix well. Fold in white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. Drop by
tablespoons on to greased cookie sheets. Bake until cookies look dry and cracked
but still feel soft when pressed lightly, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven and
let stand on sheets 5 minutes. Remove to rack and let cool completely. Drizzle
top of cookies with melted white chocolate.
Makes about 26 cookies.
