How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°. Combine granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, and vanilla in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until fluffy. Add egg; beat just until blended. Beat in flour, baking soda, and salt.
Combine cranberries and bourbon in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer; cover and remove from heat. Let stand 15 minutes. Stir plumped cranberries and walnut pieces into cookie dough. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned.
I was not pleased with this cookie. I'm not sure if I did something incorrectly, or what. The taste was okay, but the look of it was definitely not like the picture here. It was thin.The butter was at room temperature, so maybe I did not measure my sugar correctly. However, the taste was not good enough for me to say I'd give them another try. I have plenty of other cookie recipes that I'm good at baking.
