Cranberry Cashew Jumbles

Ending my holiday baking season with a surplus of dried cranberries, I went looking for suitable recipes to use them while also bing different from the many cookies already made. The idea of a brown sugar cookie appealed to me as did the inclusion of cashews. Made as posted and the resulting cookie was soft like a pillow with good chunks of fruit and nuts but not a lot of flavor from the cookie itself. I decided to flatten the tops on subsequent batches which gave them more textural/visual appeal as the studded ingredients poked out a bit more. The icing, even if you like less sweet, was really a must as it added a whole new dimension of flavor. I think cutting back about 1/4 cup of flour would yield a better cookie. Thanks.
