  1. Its important to chill the dough enough. Otherwise these cookies tend to spread a quite. 
  2. However you can play with chilling time. I chilled mine for about 20 mins to be specific. So you dont see my cookies spread well. If you want a flatter cookie, chill it for a lesser time.
  3. The cookie dough when mixed will be very sticky. And that is fine. 
  4. The Cookie is meant to be chewy and soft cake like.
  5. You can add raisins instead of cranberries. Or you can add them both. I prefer dark raisins.
  6. These cookies stay good at room temperature for a week
