Whole Wheat Cranberry & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies! Many people have been asking me for cookies! Therefore, different type of cookies are constantly on my mind. I got to do something different everytime so people don’t get bored with whatever i’m feeding them. *not that they are complaining, but it’s rather boring to do the same thing over and over again.

Dad bought some dried cranberry home and told me to use it for baking! haha! Yes, he’s always the one requesting for different bakes. I always use wholewheat flour when i’m baking for the family, firstly cos we prefer soft cookies &  it’s healthier *self-denial

Those who cannot get hold of wholewheat flour, you may use regular plain flour.

These cookies are really easy to bake & they yield a pretty large portion each time. I always like baking in large portion, in that case, i have more than enough to  go around w/o having to bake the same thing within like 2 days! i’m quite anal about baking similar stuffs couple of days apart as it doesn’t give me the kind of baker’s satisfaction. Since i have done these cookies, i’ve been handling quite a large batch of order. People who tasted them really liked it, so i hope to share it with you people!

  1. Dear Charlynn, I love the look of Cranberry & Chocolate Chip Cookies in your blog. Do I have to inter-change the tray when you bake on the upper & lower level in the oven, or just leave in as it is for 12 – 14 mins as stated.
