72 cookies


  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ cups dried cranberries

  • 1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two cookie sheets.

  2. Sift flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.

  3. Cream butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together with an electric mixer in a large bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition. Mix in vanilla extract. Gradually add flour mixture until combined. Mix in cranberries and chocolate chips.

  4. Place rounded tablespoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Flatten each ball slightly with a fork.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are soft and tops are no longer glossy, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet, then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Cook's Notes:

Any dried fruit can be used in place of the dried cranberries, just make sure any large pieces of dried fruit get cut up to about the size of a raisin.

White chocolate chips also work in place of the semisweet.
