Cranberry~Pumpkin Cookies

IMG_2781


This week's WC Ingredient Challenge ingredient was "cranberries." I have never cooked with a cranberry. I have never even bought a cranberry! I was so close to picking up the cranberry sauce and draining the buggers for this recipe until I saw fresh cranberries in the produce section of Publix. Cranberries are a lot harder then I thought they would be and I didn't expect them to be so white inside. A very interesting little berry!


Anyway, the little berry packs a serious sweet punch. I chose a pumpkin cookie because I have so much pumpkin use up. This recipe comes from allrecipes.com and has a 4.5 star rating from 179 people. I thought I would check that for myself. Normally I would scan the reviews and make some of the suggested changes that others noted but I didn't. I stuck to the recipe word for word. They were good...they were not great. I guess I should have guessed that because they were described as a cake like cookie. I don't care for cookies that have a cake texture. If I wanted cake I would eat cake. Anyway, my family loved them...all except for my baby boy...he takes after me. He proceeded to crumble it up and leave trails of it on the carpet. Needless to say, I probably won't be making them again.


Please note...my daughters princess crown was in the background...I decided to bake after trick or treating. Like we didn't have enough sweets in the house right? Cranberries are a healthy treat though...
