OOOOkkkkkkkkaaaaaaayyyy YUM!!!! With these ingredients, including the almond extract, of my, these must taste heavenly! I've made a white chocolate and cranberry cookie, but never with nuts and almond flavor! I will have to try this one! I have a freezer full of cranberries (grown locally here on the coast) so I can dry my own cranberries (in food dehydrator) and make these! YUM, thanks for sharing!
Hugs, Heidi
