Have you ever noticed that most of the candy for Valentine's Day tends to be chocolate? Don't get me wrong - I love chocolate as much as the next person, but sometimes it's just nice to do something different.
I first made these cookies at Christmas, but I think they would be great for Valentine's Day and a nice change from the typical chocolate. The sweet of the chocolate and the tart of the cranberries are perfect together. The texture of the cookie is just right, too. Slightly crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.
The recipe for these cookies is from Sally's Baking Addiction so if you would like to make these cookies for your Valentine, go here for the recipe.
Here are a few tips when baking these cookies.
- you will need to chill the dough before baking
- bake the cookies on parchment lined baking sheets - the parchment paper prevents burning
- only bake the cookies for 8 to 9 minutes - the won't look ready and you'll want to cook them longer, but don't. Just let the cookies cool on the baking sheet and they'll be perfect
Happy Valentine's Day
