I waited to late to buy candied fruit...can't find it anywhere. Can I substitute with baking cranberries, and white and dark raisins (and nuts of course) and still make a good or similar cookie?

Of course! :) I play around with substitutions all the time when I'm making fruitcake (so the same should be true for cookies too). In my Christmas cake this year I added chopped dried figs, yum. Dried cranberries are great in cookies, I really like the slight tartness they add. Let us know how it goes!
