If you have been following my blog, you would have noticed that I am part of a group that posts baked dishes 3 days a week, all through December. And that event is called Bakeathon. This eggless Chocolate Cranberry Cookies Recipe is my fourth bake for the event.

My eggless basic cookie dough is proving to be a blessing in disguise! I had already signed up for 4 weeks of Blogging marathon #95 and didn’t sign up for bakeathon. But I gave in to the temptation when my friends discussed about their bakes and then the kids added fuel to the fire by lamenting that its been ages since I baked!

So I just asked them for flavors and gave choices and their suggestions were taken into account for making the list.


With the ingredients I had and the time needed to bake, I made sure I had a few cookies with the basic cookie dough.

I just need to add flavorings and add ons to make some varieties that will tide me over for a few days.

I realized that I din’t make any chocolate flavored cookies with the cookie dough and decided to pair it up with the cranberries I had left. And some chopped pistachio left over from the Rose pistachio cookies also went into this dough.

Adding nuts is optional but it does add to the crunch and flavor to the cookies.

I was worried that over working the cookie dough will affect the texture of the cookies, but luckily the cookies turned out great!
