Cranberry Chocolate Chip Spice Cookies

Cranberry Chocolate Chip Spice Cookies
It’s been a while since I’ve made cookies. Cookies are one of my favorite 'goto' bakes to make. Simply combine the ingredients, scoop, bake and mostly you’re done.
I always like to add a bit of flavor though and these cookies contain ingredients which are a good segue between the autumn and Christmas period.
In them are dried cranberries, which are very synonymous with the festive season and also Thanksgiving as well. They give a sweet, juicy burst to these biscuits.

I’ve also added chocolate chips, but haven’t specified which chocolate as I think any would work in this recipe. I personally used ones I had picked up in Canada, which are swirled with white and milk chocolate. Very pretty, like a cream and brown coloured big top. White chocolate and cranberries go so well together, but then again dark chocolate does too. So really, any chocolate chips you have on hand are ideal.

I’ve added some spice as well with Allspice, giving a nod to seasonal pumpkin spice flavours and Christmas spiciness too.

The cookies also have oats in them to provide a bit of body and texture.
All in all a flavourful easy cookie to knock up that is ideal for this time of year. What shall we call it - Wintumn? 
Here's how I made them...
