Yesterday, my 7 year old grandson told me that he loved Craisins. I had just seen this recipe and decided to make it for him. The cookies are awesome! It's a large recipe and that's good. By the time I distribute bags of cookies to my grandsons and a few friends, I'll have some left for me too. The only changes I made to this recipe was that I used regular Craisins instead of the cherry flavored and it was fine. I love the buttery taste of these cookies and I'm sure my family and friends will too. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
