Cranberry & Chocolate Sugar Cookies

I’m trying to be extra good and use up all the baking bits and bobs that I’ve accumulated before I buy new ingredients. I had a bunch of leftover dried cranberries and a plethora of chocolate sprinkles.

These sugar cookies are pretty flexible. You could add any leftover sprinkles, nuts or dried fruit to the batter. The chocolate and cranberry make an excellent Christmas and Thanksgiving flavor.
