I always make white chocolate macadamia nut cookies for the holidays..but they are so sweet and I decided to change it up this year. I have been reading alot online about making cookies with that perfect crisp chewy texture, like the ones in the cookie shops. It seems that by melting the butter and baking them at a lower temp, this can be achieved. I tried it with this recipe and had very good results. The tartness of the dried cranberries helped a lot to cut the sweetness. With nuts being so pricey this year, almonds are what I can afford so that is what I used..Delicious!
