Personal Notes:
Kids love to help mom bake in the kitchen. This recipe is just for those smaller hands so they can proudly give the best gift of all; one they have made. It is an excellent gift for teachers, and one you know the teacher can use. Every grownup on your childs list will love them.
The cranberries not only make for a delicious cookie, but add color to the gift.
