  3. Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda together in a separate bowl; blend into the wet ingredients in the mixing bowl to form a cookie dough. Stir cranberries and walnuts into the dough.
  4. Drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheet by the teaspoonful.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Sprinkle confectioners' sugar over the cookies to serve.

These came out pretty good! Downed the amount of cranberries by a half of cup and it was plenty. Did not have milk so used equal parts condensed milk/water. Definitely an easy cookie to make!

Easy to make, chewy and good. I didn't have enough cranberries, so I added a cup of raisins. In all I put 2 cups...I think 2 1/2 cups might be a bit much...with the nuts in there too I could see them being a bit crumbly with too much of the dried fruit. So it works well with 2 cups :)
