Hi guys, here is a great cookie recipe that I found in a Aldi cookie book I have. I didn’t even remember that I had this book and I was very happy and surprised. I don’t know if they even sell these anymore and I sure don’t remember when I got this or purchased it, but I am sharing this recipe so you can enjoy another awesome cookie recipe that is budget friendly.
All ingredients here can be purchased which I alway love. The name of this cookie book is”Home for the Holidays” and it was done by Aldi.com.
1 ½ bars (10.58 ounces each) Austrian milk chocolate
1-¾ cups flour
1/3 cup baking cocoa
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
1-cup (2 sticks) butter softened
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
¾ cup dried cranberries
Additional sugar for dipping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Chop chocolate bars into small chunks to measure 2 cups and set aside.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a bowl and set aside. Beat butter, 1-cup sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl on medium speed using a hand mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla until well blended. Gradually beat in the flour mixture on low-speed until blended. Then stir in chocolate chunks and cranberries.
Drop dough by ¼ cup full onto an ungreased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Flatten dough to 2 inches in diameter with a bottom of a glass that has been dipped in sugar.
Bake 11 to 12 minutes or until cookies are set. Cool cookies 2 minutes on cookie sheet before moving to wire cooling rack.
