White Trash Cookies with Almonds and Fresh Cranberries

White Trash Cookies with Almonds and Fresh Cranberries

Drop spoonfuls onto parchment-lined tray and bake at 350

I have to confess that when I first tried one of these, I wasn't crazy about them.  They had very little flavor to me.  I ended up setting aside some for Christmas and took some to the office, along with other goodies, for a holiday luncheon.  There were only a few leftover from the luncheon, and because nobody would be around the office to eat them over the holiday, I brought them home with me.

I didn't think of the cookies again until the day after Christmas, when I noticed the container with the few I had brought home from the office. For some reason, I ate one and thought hmmmm, that's not how I remember them?!    Where they were crisp and blah to me initially, they were now slightly chewy and sweet, and I could definitely discern the different ingredients.  Maybe my taste buds were shot on the day I made them from making/tasting spaghetti sauce, meatballs, etc. at the same time.  I might have to sneak over to my sister's house to see if there are any left there from Christmas.  ;)
