Festive Cranberry-Orange Cookies

Cookie # 4 in:

Festive Cranberry-Orange Cookies

1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon dried, orange peel
3/4 cup chopped dried sweetened cranberries
1 cup (2 sticks) butter softened
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Add softened butter and eggs.  Beat until thoroughly mixed.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned around the edges.

Remove from oven and let cookies cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute.  Transfer to cooling rack.  (Makes 3 to 3 1/2 dozen.)


I wasn't sure if I'd like these because of the Cranberries.  I was pleasantly surprised.  They were pretty good.  Kaylee liked them until I told her the chunks were cranberries, then she suddenly didn't like them! 

Sadly, the dogs liked them a little too well.  I had them in a ziplock on the counter.  I came home to an empty ziplock on the floor with a hole chewed in the side. 

Let me know if you try them!

  1. I will have to try these out. Have you ever tried white chocolate cranberry. We make those and they are amazing.

  2. Love this recipe! Planning on giving it a try. I dont' care for raisins, so usually use cranberries in their place. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Oh my goodness, the dogs must have been thrilled, lol! These would be awesome at Christmas time too.
