Cranberry Coconut Crinkle Cookies Recipe

Cranberry Coconut Crinkle Cookies

These crinkle cookies are crunchy (crinkly) on the outside, and chewy, soft and moist inside. You don’t see the crinkles so well unlike in chocolate crinkle cookies.

Cranberries and coconut went well together. I was wondering about this since it is not a common combination.

If you don’t like the texture of dried fruits, you probably won’t like these cookies. Baking enhanced the sticky effect, making the cranberries sticker.

The cookies were sweet. You can reduce the amount of sugar by 25% if you prefer something less sweet.

  1. I think you could make a case for these being a colonial New England cookie with the cranberries (Massachusetts) combining with coconut (Caribbean) - just add rum and you've got the molasses trade route mapped!
