Responsibility - Chocolate & Cranberry Cookies

I apologise profusely for being MIA. Just been tough to sit myself down and get this written. I've got a horrible memory so out of 3 of my recipes, I only remember one - the most recent. pffft.

Whatever the case, better one than none! (:

On a brighter note, I've got crafts to share. Crafts I've started doing for fun & Christmas. Keep watching! (:

So, this recipe is easy peasy. So many times I crave a good fresh cookie without funny preservatives and stuff, and what could taste better than something you make yourself!
Stock up on homemade goodies! You'll be less likely to buy food on the way home as you walk past the petrol station, grocery store or the next convenience store on the corner. Easy on the love handles...and other jiggly bits.

From the best bakesale cookbook...
