  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, white and brown sugars, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until the mixture is creamy and well blended. Beat in eggs, one at a time, and then gradually beat in the flour just until the mixture makes a soft dough. Stir in the pecans, rolled oats, and cranberries, and drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the cookies are set and the edges are slightly brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Let the cookies cool for 1 minute on baking sheets before removing to wire racks to finish cooling. Glaze cookies while still a little warm.
  4. Place the confectioners' sugar and orange juice in a microwave-safe bowl, and stir to dissolve the sugar. Stir in the orange zest and butter, and microwave on medium power until the butter melts and the mixture is warm, about 30 seconds. Stir the warm glaze until smooth, and drizzle over cookies.

I could not keep these in the house and not expect them to disappear. The only thing I changed was I added spices 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of ginger and 1/2 tsp of cloves it really gives it that winter/ holiday kick!

These cookies are so far beyond delicious. Followed the recipe exactly, except for the proportions of the glaze. I used 2/3 c. powdered sugar with just enough orange juice to make it into a thick liquid, then added the orange peel. Butter is unnecessary, and this was just the right amount for the number of cookies.

These are delicious cookies. Except for using walnuts instead of pecans, I followed the recipe. The orange glaze is what makes these cookies unlike most oatmeal cranberry cookies, so don't skip that part. These are moist and chewy and still good a few days after making them.

Yummy! I was snacking on some cranberries, and thought- this would make a DELLICIOUS cookie! so i went on ahead onto and looked it up, and found this recipe, I tried it out, and my whole family finshed the plate! I personally don't favor nuts, so I did not use the pecans, and it satisfied my tastebuds anyhow!

These are crazy yummy! Very easy to make. I took them to work, and even the very picky ones loved them. The only thing that I would have changed is the amount of glaze, I ended up with a lot left over. Give these cookies a shot, you won't regret it!

Mmmm! The biscuits in themselves are excellent. What is up with the glaze??? Like water consistency and enough to cover 3 batches. Next time I think I will halve the quantities of this and add a little more confectioner's sugar and zezt to make the glaze more flavourful if slightly thicker. Can't fault the biscuits!!!

The dough was too I added another cup of oats. I substituted dried blueberries and added 2 t. of Chinese 5 spice. My orange was not all that juicy so instead of the fresh OJ I added the OJ from the Diary case and it worked just may have had a bit more flavor. Oh yes, the cookies spread so much in my oven that I could only bake 9 on a standard cookie sheet. They are GREAT!
