Cranberry Walnut Cookies

Cookie season is officially upon us.  {Not that cookies are ever really out of season...}  This is an easy recipe - only five ingredients - and it takes about 20 minutes to make them from start to finish.

And you will love them!

Cranberry Walnut Cookies


  • 1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
  • 1/2 cup butter (one stick) softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped


Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in cherries, chocolate chunks and nuts.

On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls (or use level 3 tablespoon-size scoop) about 2 inches apart.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely.

These are very moist, thanks to the addition of the cranberries.  The walnuts give the cookies a lovely crunch, and the cranberries add just the right level of tartness to balance the sugary cookie.

All this in just 20 minutes - fantastic!
