This is another recipe I had posted at a very long time ago but one my family has always enjoyed. I do tend to make these more often with Splenda now, but this is the recipe as I originally posted it. You can use Splenda if you prefer.

I have to admit I get “cranberry fever” once I can get fresh berries in the autumn. I manage to make them every way shape and form I can think of. There’s so much more to do than just cranberry sauce!

Don’t get me wrong – we enjoy good homemade cranberry sauce! But the berries are also welcome in savory dishes and especially desserts. Like these cookies. I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does!
