When it’s not the cranberries season (which is in winter), feel free to replace cranberries by fresh or frozen (defrosted actually) red fruits such as raspberries, redcurrants, blackcurrant.
A few tips for baking those cookies
- Place cookie dough for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator (or more briefly in the freezer) before baking them in the oven. Baking cookies with cold dough helps to have thick cookies, the dough don’t spread in contact with heat). If thick they will remain soft in the center.
- Remove the cookies from the oven when they are still soft, they harden while cooling. Cookies are often overcooked.
- You can replace spelt flour by normal baking wheat flour.
