this recipe for cranberry chocolate chip cookies on Keep It Sweet Desserts and was intrigued. Then when I saw it involved brown butter coupled with the fact I had half a bag of fresh cranberries left over from Christmas it moved up to my must try list. So on Sunday I set out to make these. I was a little disappointed that the dough had to chill overnight so I wouldn't be eating the chocolately brown buttery tartness right then but I soldiered on. Yesterday I pulled the carefully wrapped up ball of dough and got to work. The results - eh. If I made these again I think I would use chocolate chips or even mini chocolate chips as the stiff dough pared with the big juicy cranberries and the chocolate chunks was a little difficult to work with. As for the flavor - not my favorite cookie. I liked the fresh cranberries but the cookie itself was a little dry. I will definitely be looking for something else to bake fresh cranberries into - I've got about a cup left!
Source - Keep It Sweet Desserts - which has all kinds of great recipes even though this one didn't quite do it for me.
Verdict - Liked the idea better than the execution.
Next Week - So far 2014 has been very productive. I've gotten things reorganized, cleaned out, moved around and put up. Unfortunately the downside to this is that I can't seem to shut my mind off and have been staying up until 1 or 2 every night. I'm a big fan of just pouring coffee onto the problem but it's getting a little much. When I came across this pin for an 8 Minute Yoga Workout for better sleep on my Stuff for Me board I decided I have to give it a try.
