Amaretto Cookie with White Chocolate Chips

Amaretto Cookie

Amaretto cookies

The Amaretto Cookie story goes something like this. I was thumbing through a magazine a long time ago and I ran across this amazing recipe. I ran to the store and I made these cookies. I ate almost all of them myself. I was in love! Then fast forward years later I have no idea where the recipe went off to. I searched the web to find it but I couldn’t so after a little yummy trial and error . I recreated the recipe I loved with the addition of the fresh cranberries. I like the color they bring to my favorite cookie and the sweet and tart flavor.
