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 added dried cranberries helped alot with the sweetness. Almonds are what I can afford this year so in they went..Delicious!
