grated orange zest
fresh cranberries, roughly chopped
I have made these cookies a few times. The first time I made them with the fresh cranberries and it was a lot of work and the cookie did not have the sweetness I was hoping for. The second time I made these cookies I substituted orange flavored Craisins (sweetened dried cranberries) for the fresh cranberries. After I did that I got rave reviews on the cookies. They are now my mother-in-law’s favorite cookie. After the cranberry change I would give this cookie recipe 5 stars.
I will not make these cookies again. I use fresh cranberries and they did not taste good and the glaze was not good. I did follow the recipe to the tee.
Excellent cookies, full of flavor and original! I changed a few things though: I wanted a stronger orange taste, so I doubled the orange juice (and adjusted the amount of flour accordingly) and quadrupled the orange zest. I used fresh cranberries that I half-mashed, but used a bit less than a cup. I also added extra nutmeg and some clove. I baked the cookies a bit longer (about 10-12 minutes) and they came out chewy but not limp. Thank you for this recipe!
I would add some extra cranberries, but the cookies were good. The better bites were the ones full of cranberries.
These cookies were very moist and I loved the cranberries in them. I'm not huge on citrus but the girls at work absolutly loved them.
Absolutely AMAZING!!! I gave them away to my neighbors and even to a girl I'm interested in dating. I watched her eat some and keep going back for more. They are that good!
These are one of my favorite cookies! Yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 5 star
Cookies were soft and yummy! Variations i made : added a half a cup of wheat bran, used dried sweetened cranberries, an extra 1/4 cup of oatmeal, a dash of salt and 3/4 of a teaspoon baking powder. Cookies weren't very sweet, could probably use a little more sugar, but were very delicious. Made an orange frosting with 2 tbsp. orange juice, 1 cup of powdered sugar and 1/2 tsp. give or take of orange zest. This frosting gave them the sweetness I was looking for. Thanks for the awesome recipe. And i did cook them about a minute longer
