Cranberry Chocolate Chip cookies

Was there a recipe for these? Not that I ever saw. I am just obsessed and in love with cranberries, especially the dried ones. We eat them in and on everything. Well, Kian and I anyway. I followed my Hershey's Chocolate cookbook (reprinted from 1934) chocolate chip recipe and added my cranberries.

Ingredients:
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 granulated sugar
2 Egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cup Hershey's Chocolate Chips
1 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

Cream butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips and cranberries. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown.

Hints: take them out before 10 minutes. I find that 7 -8 is perfect. I like them done on the bottom but nice and soft and gooey chewy. They are easy, yet delicious and just kick it up a notch in the classy department.
