These are really good! But I did have to cook them 10-11 minutes and at that, they were just browned a little. Very nice flavors. Oh! I did use orange juice concentrate instead of the triple sec. Thanks for the tip ranch-girl, and the great cookies! Reviewed for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #14.
Very good. I didn't feel like waiting on the cranberries to soak so i cooked them in the microwave with the triple sec for 45 seconds and cooked as usual and I think it was fine. I had to bake mine a minute or two more. New Review: My DH says this is his favorite cookie, he gets everyone to try 1 cookie, that's it, just 1. The soaking in triple sec is very important.
These are great. I used whole wheat flour, replaced the sec with water and vanilla. And used milk chocolate chips. Used what I had on hand...these were still good.
