Cranberry Nut Cookies

Cranberries are perfect for Autumn. You can use fresh cranberries or ones that are frozen; just thaw the frozen ones.

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. I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does!
