Cranberry Hootycreek Cookies

Last week I got a text from my husband at lunch time asking if he was in trouble or had been 'naughty'. He didn't have any sweets in his lunch all week long. I took that as a BIG hint to bake something. This recipe is from a friend from Green Bay. I haven't made them in many years, but really like them. I knew I had all the ingredients, so Kathleen and I whipped them up. I didn't have white baking chips, so used white block chocolate and cut up a cups worth into chunks.

  1. Hootycreek?! What a name!

    These sound good.

  2. Beth, I found these online yesterday and made them and the Mister and I LOVE them. (He also loved your opening paragraph on this post!) I used your recipe to bake a batch and then I find a pared-down recipe on another site to make some Mason Jar gifts, too.

    I am incredibly happy to have found your site!! What a Christmas present to me and I will be sharing this with my DDIL and I am also going to link your site in my own blog post today so you might get some sudden traffic! Thank you for all the work you do, and have done, for all of us!! Happy Holidays, Darnell (
