There’s not many steps to this recipe. You’re mixing and dropping the cookies. You don’t even have to make wet ingredients and dry ingredients. It’s a one-bowl wonder type of recipe. The hardest part is going to be cutting the fresh cranberries. They’re so small and roll around. I always just cut a few at a time and then patiently chop them. That’s it though – nothing else is too difficult!

Making These Cranberry Coconut Macaroons For A Gift

Our family loves these cookies and I’d make them anyways, but they’re a great homemade holiday gift too. You can double the recipe and pass them out as gifts. Buy some Tin Cookie Boxes, from Amazon, and you can pass them out as gifts. I make 3-4 different types of cookies and place them together in a box.

When To Buy Fresh Cranberries

What I love about this recipe is how festive the cranberries look for Christmas. You can see the red specks really shine through and they add a slightly tart taste. You can purchase fresh cranberries, in your local grocery store, starting in mid-October. They’re usually kept in stock until late December. I purchase organic fresh cranberries.
