Cranberry Orange Cookies
Wow, this recipe was perfect as written! Maybe the walnut flavor & crunchy texture would come out more if they were roasted first though.

Moravian Spice Cookies
If you've ever made ginger snaps, you know the dough is supposed to be dry. This is similar, however in making this recipe as written, the dough was already getting brittle after I mixed in the first cup of flour... but it was such a lovely deep brown color and the spices were already smelling so wonderful that I refused give up! I kept adding melted butter and sugar till I got the right consistency while mixing in the second cup of flour. All told, I added 1 stick (1/2 cup) of butter and 1 cup melted brown sugar, plus an extra 1/2 tsp. of all the spices. I skipped the oil altogether. It was worth the effort and the cookies came out just as delicious as I'd initially hoped! These crunchy, spicy treats make a delightful contrast on a Christmas cookie tray with richer sweet items.

Eggnog Cookies I
sooo good. A nice twist on the simple sugar cookie. I doubled the vanilla extract and rolled the drops of dough in a sugar/nutmeg mixture before baking, which gave them a festive sparkly sheen. I think they taste adaquetely eggnog-y although I'm sure the addition of rum extract other reviewers have used would really make these outstanding. I just didn't feel like buying something that'd sit in my spice cabinet for 10 years!
