Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter and Cranberry Cookies

Usually at around this time of the year, I start looking at recipes to make some Christmas Cookies for friends and ourselves. This year, I spotted this recipe and thought I could give it a go. Afterall, it has peanut butter in it!!

It was a tad too soft for my liking, though we totally did enjoy it. AR likes the touch of pumpkin seeds which has the added crunch to it. 

I  baked it for an additional 5 mins just to make it more crisp... I suspect though that with the high content of fat from peanut butter, it make it crumbly but not crisp. pr maybe... just maybe.. it's because i ran out of almond meal and used flour!

If you like your cookies crumbly, this one is for you!
