This experiment came out quite good. Not at all like the crisp sugar cookie basic dough they were made from. These came out soft, moist and fruity. We both LOVED them. It’s the moisture of the cranberries that moistens these cookies right up. These are not acceptable until you get to Atkins Phase 2 OWL but are suitable for other Ketogenic diets. They would not be acceptable for Primal-Paleo unless you sub in a plan-acceptable sweetener like honey (to taste).
If you like a crunchier cookie, you might prefer my Refrigerator Cranberry Cookies recipe.

1 recipe my Sugar Cookie dough
1 c. chopped fresh cranberries
6-12 drops liquid sucralose to taste (needed to offset tart cranberries]
¼ c. unsweetened coconut
DIRECTIONS: Make sugar cookies as instructed in that recipe, adding the additional liquid stevia to the creamed butter and Splenda. When all ingredients are blended well, add in chopped cranberries and coconut. Fold the fruit in until it is uniformly distributed. Dough will make 18 small balls of dough. Place balls of dough onto parchment lined cookie sheet. Press down with fingers or the back of a fork to flatten a bit. These spread little during cooking, so if careful, you can get all 18 on one pan. 🙂 Bake at 350º for 15-18 minutes until just browned on the edges. Cool on the pan before removing. Do not cover until TOTALLY cooled off.
