Grandma’s Cranberry Cookies

If you’re looking for a simple, back to basics cookie recipe for the holidays, or really any time of the year, try grandma’s recipe.

We love these cookies because they’re not super decadent or overly sweet, and the sugar coating on the outside gives them a yummy little bit of crunch while keeping the inside really soft. They’re a perfect accompaniment to coffee or tea.

To add a little holiday flair to these cookies, swap out raisins for Craisins (any sweetened, dried cranberry will do). The secret to these cookies is simmering the dried cranberries in water so that they become moist and plump before adding them to the cookie batter. And a surprise ingredient is a little Crisco. If you really want soft cookes, then Crisco is the way to go.
