Cranberry and Macadamia Nuts Cookies

Crunchy macadamia nuts cookiesLet's make some cookies which can be easily stored for up to 2 weeks. I've used dried cranberries and macadamia nuts to flavor them. One can also use almonds if macadamia nuts are not available. I've kept the cookie dough slightly firmer than normal because I'm using cookie cutter frames to settle them down in a refrigerator before baking. You can use the regular way of dropping spoonfuls of lighter dough base on a baking sheet. Do not hesitate in adding your favorite chocolate chips in these cookies. Cookies bake quite fast so pay attention to the time to get the best results. So, prepare your oven to quickly make these light and mouth-watering cranberry cookies for loved ones and friends.
