Cranberry Decadent Cookies

Here's a cookie recipe shared at my holiday cookie exchange. It's definitely decadent and has a wonderful chewy texture similar to a brownie. What's great about this recipe is that it's super easy to make, My friend Nancy who made this, is currently pregnant and her husband, Anthony, was the one that prepped all the ingredients. This recipe is also great to make with kids too!
