I usually make white chocolate macadamia nut cookies for the holidays..but they are so sweet and I decided to change it up this year. The tartness of the dried cranberries helped a lot to cut the sweetness and makes them pretty for Christmas. With nuts being so pricey this year, almonds are what I can afford so that is what I used..Delicious!
