Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cookies (GF)




CHOCOLATE CHIP CRANBERRY COOKIES
I love the touch of cinnamon in this cookie.  It is a substantial, crunchy cookie. The cranberries give it a distinctive, festive accent, however, if desired use 1/4 cup (60 mL) raisins snipped in half instead.

3/4  tsp baking soda (3 mL)
1/tsp baking powder (1 mL)
