Double Chocolate Cranberry Cookie Recipe
Double Chocolate Cranberry Cookie Recipe | Source

This recipe is for my husband. He thinks this cookie is the best one he has ever eaten, and he's usually a low-key guy who, even though he likes the things I bake, doesn't go overboard on the praise.

This was one of the first cookies I ever made for him, and his reaction left little doubt that I would be making them for years to come. Thirteen years later, it is still his favorite, and I still make them every Christmas, just for him.

With a hint of cinnamon, Double Chocolate Cranberry Cookies are a combination of semisweet and unsweetened chocolate, and are filled with two kinds of nuts and dried cranberries. They don't have a lot of flour in them, so they have a wonderfully moist texture on the inside.

The cinnamon adds an interesting flavor and because of it, the taste reminds me a little bit of chocolate rugelah, a traditional Jewish pastry.

If you like rich moist chocolate cookies, combined with a crunchy texture, then these cookies are for you.

Dried cranberries

Buy an extra packet of dried cranberries when picking up the ingredients for this recipe. They are delicious on their own or in salads, trail mixes, pastries and savory recipes. Pack them in your childs' lunch for a healthy snack, or munch on some yourself. They are a delicious, tart treat.

When choosing a dried fruit, use one that is soft and chop down to the size of raisins.

Ingredients

  • 8 tbs (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 8 oz. semisweet chocolate squares
  • 3 oz. unsweetened chocolate squares
  • 2 cups walnuts, chopped
  • 2 cups pecans, chopped
  • 1 cup dried cranberries, cut in half
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 tsps vanilla
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine nuts, cranberries and chocolate chips. Set aside. In another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. Using a double boiler, gently heat the semisweet and unsweetened chocolate squares until just melted. Stir constantly while melting. Set aside to cool, until just warm to the touch.
  3. Beat the eggs and sugar until bubbly. Then whisk in the cooled chocolate mixture and the vanilla.
  4. With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour mixture until well incorporated.
  5. Stir in the nut, cranberry and chocolate chip mixture by hand.
  6. Preheat your oven to 325°. Drop the dough, about the size of a tablespoon, onto parchment lined baking trays. They should be 1 to 2 inches apart. Bake for 15 minutes or until cookies are slightly firm and cracked.
  7. Cool on a wire rack.

Note: These cookies don't really rise or spread, so they can be placed fairly closely together on the baking tray.

Baking tip

For these, and any other cookies, I highly recommend using parchment paper. These cookies are very sticky and the parchment paper makes removing them easy.

Enjoy these cookies with a tall glass of cold milk

Chewy and full of chocolate flavor, these Double Chocolate Cranberry Cookies are delicious any time of the year. They are filled with loads of nuts and dried fruit, and the crunchy outside hides a surprisingly soft inside.

This recipe makes quite a few cookies so I always use it for my Christmas cookie list and I always get requests for the recipe. They freeze well if you want to save some for later.

If I let him, my husband would probably eat an entire tray full. In fact, I usually hide them deep in our freezer to make sure he doesn't sneak any out.

Hopefully these cookies will become one of your favorites too.

      Thanks brandmasterOCcal - The cinnamon really adds a nice unexpected touch and fresh cranberries would probably turn to mush if they were baked in the cookie. Thanks for reading and commenting.

      Hi Charmain English - I'm glad you enjoyed this recipe. I'd be interested to know if the coconut flour and raw honey work in this cookie. Let me know if you try it and thanks so much for reading and commenting. Happy Thanksgiving to you.

      This sounds too delicious. I would like to try the recipe. However, I would probably put a Paleo spin on it by substituting the flour and sugar with coconut flour and raw honey.

      It's me again:) I took your suggestion and used a metal bowl on top of a pot of water and it worked.

      These are the best cookies. They turned out so moist and the cranberry has just the right flavor to pair with the chocolate. Thanks so much!

      Hi Jackie - I always have nuts in my cupboard too. Even just for snacking. Sounds like you'll be doing a lot of baking in the upcoming days. Have fun and thanks for stopping by!

      Hi Heather - Thanks for reading and commenting. We always have Craisins around the house. I really love them in salads. I bet they are good in granola bars too! Have a great day.

      Bill - My husband can be pretty spare with the comments about my food, but he does love my baking and these cookies. I can't ever stop making these, but that is ok, it's a really nice tradition now. Thanks for the support. Hope you are doing well.

      Gosh I would almost eat that dough it looks so good! Pecans and walnuts, yum, I keep both all the time! I know I have to have this, that candy apple pie and Vespa's rum cake so I am going to have those 12 days of Christmas if I come across too much more good! Thank you; I will make this! ^+

      These look super duper yummy. I love using cherry Craisins in homemade granola bars, cookies, and salads. Can't wait to try these. Pinned for later :)

      Now that's one I've never heard of, but if your husband speaks so highly of it then I'll give it a try. Thank you for this one; I have no doubt that I will enjoy the extra poundage it puts on my body. :)
