Cranberry Hootycreeks

I hosted my second annual cookie exchange in our neighborhood last weekend.  It was a lot of fun! We have drinks and hors d'oeuvres, an ornament gift exchange and then exchange our cookies at the end.   I look forward to this event, not only because I adore Christmas time, but I am getting great recipes and ideas for my baking hobby!  I decided to layer my cookie recipe in a jar with attached directions for one of my take home gifts for my friends.  This year I made Cranberry Hootycreeks.  I originally found this recipe on Allrecipes and made them for the first time about 4 years ago.  They are delicious!!  I wanted to share this holiday recipe for your next cookie exchange, or maybe your next craving....
