An excellent cookie, soft and moist with just the right balance of chocolate, nuts and fruit.

These cookies were delicious. I did add some chopped walnuts, cranberries and chocolate chips, then reduced the sugar, see the link of customized recipe below.

They are certainly my kind of sweets, not super rich but rich and sweet enough to my taste. They were moist, chocolaty and definitely well satisfied my chocolate craving!
