Soft Chocolate Cranberry Cookies (vegan)

Perfectly soft and thick chocolate cranberry cookies. Making a fun and unique cookie has never been easier! 
What's the secret to keeping these cookies soft? Cornstarch! 
If you have never tried adding cornstarch to your cookies, I highly recommend it. Just like it gives gravies, puddings, and fillings a more full-bodied texture, cornstarch will keep your cookie dough more compact during the baking process, leaving the cookies soft, thick, and puffy.
Make sure not to over bake these as it will result in a crunchier cookie. It will still be tasty but if a soft cookie is what you want, try to keep the bake time closer to 10 minutes or less even depending on how long you refrigerated the dough for.
