Fantastic Christmas cookie I did add 1 teaspoon water to mix they taste as good as they look!

I have not made this yet

Tried the recipe again, with much better results. Added the tablespoon of water, used much softer butter and a brand new KitchenAid mixer. Not sure which did the trick, but we now have "cookies" instead of "crumbles". Thanks much. Excellent, EASY recipe.

We've tried these cookies on 3 different occasions. We're having trouble keeping the dough together. It's extremely crumbly. We don't know if the butter is too soft, not soft enough, or maybe we're not mixing it long enough.

Hi there! The Test Kitchen is sorry that this recipe has not been turning out well for you. Its suggestion is that the butter should be soft enough (but not melted) that it doesnt have any lumps in it after beating with sugar. The Test Kitchen also recommends mixing the batter longer and adding 1 tablespoon of water if needed. Let us know how to this recipe turns out for you, we would love to hear your feedback. Enjoy!

These are what Christmas tastes like! I made smaller cookies and got 6 dozen. They were the perfect size for putting on Christmas cookie trays. I agree using pecans would make these taste like Pecan Sandies. This would be a wonderful year round recipe. So delicious and easy to make!

Wonderful cookies. I will make them with semi-sweet chocolate chips for Valentines Day. Substituting pecans reminds me of Pecan Sandies.

I made these using dried cranberries and they were a really big hit . Had to make more 2 days later. Everyone wanted to take some home. You hit the jackpot

Hi! Can you use fresh cranberries instead of dried

We do not recommend using fresh cranberries for this recipe as they may pop while baking and cause a mess.

These are DELICIOUS! Everyone wanted more!!! I agree with erichard - I used a smaller cookie scoop and they were DONE in 9 minutes. They were just right, 8 1/2 would have been perfect! Also, they made 75 cookies with the smaller scoop.

They do melt in your mouth. Using teaspoon size drops, the cookies are small and bake faster than 10 minutes and I may reduce oven temp to 375! Watch carefully.

These drop cookies literally melt in your mouth. I love the combination of cranberries, chocolate and walnuts. I think I'll make them as Christmas gifts. Simply delicious!
