Chocolate walnut cranberry cookies

I haven’t baked cookies for ages. I even start to think that was around Christmas, when I baked cookies. It’s good to have some cookies in a tin as a snack, it’s also kind of dangerous. A the moment of writing these words these chocolate walnut cranberry cookies exists only on the photos. It’s their own fault, they have everything you may expect from cookies a little bit chewiness, a little bit crunch, some saltiness, sweetness and tanginess as well. A lot of is going on and that’s probably you don’t even notice when they disappear. They are one of the best cookies I ever made, so enjoy them responsibly.
