also I would use milk chocolate chips for the chips to stir-in.. the bittersweet were fine for the batter (the part you melt)

These are delish and so easy to make! My mom said they are to die for! Would be good swapping the cranberries for raisins, too!

Yummy! I doubled the recipe, except for the baking powder, used my regular cookie scoop

I cut the recipe in half and used only 6oz semi-sweet chocolate chips. It turned out great, however I felt like the cookies were too big. It was crispy on the outside and chewy inside. Next time I'm going to make it a bit smaller

My cookies did not flatten at all. They have a cake-like texture. Thank goodness for the cranberries.

these are good but don't make them too big; a 1/4 c of dough i sjust too much for a cookie. Use about half that amount and reduce cooking time. Do watch out to not overbake as they will get hollow in the middle and too crunchy.

Never, ever, ever make a single batch of these. ALWAYS a double batch. Take my word for it.
