Itadaki-masu~ Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

My new favorite food find on the net is  Tastespotting.com .  I have been leaving little pools of drool by the keyboard most days I visit.  So, to make my visits productive and not just get my fill of foodie photography I  will be taking one recipe or two each week and giving it a go.  This week's cooking adventure will be the Cranberry Chocolate Chip cookies I made over the Thanksgiving break.
 These little guys bake up so pretty and contain two of my favorite things... chocolate and cranberries.  The recipe is very simple and I made only a few adjustments from the original, not that daring of a baker yet ;)   My only mishap was when we started chopping the berries, I had berries bouncing and rolling all over the kitchen.  I swear there needs to be warning sirens when I put my apron on.  I will be getting some more berries to freeze so we can have this nummy treat all year.  Even Hubby, non cranberry lover, was pleasantly surprised and I kept catching him sneaking a cookie or two ;p
