  • 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts (I love nuts so the more the better)
  • 2 tbsp. of fresh cranberries (optional- if you use cranberries make sure you candy them well or they will be tart)
  • 2 tsps. of butter (or more)

  3. Add to a greased cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
