CNY 2019 - CRANBERRIES GERMAN COOKIESAgain, it is time to bake Chinese New Year cookies. Last year this time was a very busy and tiring period when my mother in-law was in hospital for operation. Time was not enough then to get the necessary things and routine done as I was juggling from home to hospital and work.There are several cookies which I have intended to try but all set aside due to shortage of time and the worries over my in-law's condition.
Now, with things back to normal, I supposed there shall be enough time for me to get going to bake the various cookies.German Cookies, I have baked several but I think I have not tried one with dried cranberries. This is it, crispy, crunchy with a soft bite of the cranberry bits.
