Anyway you can add any dried fruit to your preference.This old fashioned favourite cookies with nutty almond crunch is really crunch-a-delicious!!

I like this type of cookies...with lots of nuts! Brown sugar is even better for the cookies.

Cranberries instead of raisins is brilliant. I think the cookies mustve tasted much better.
