Orange Cranberry Cookies

Just not too long ago, I shared my attempt at baking a cranberry orange bread. I used half of the total amount of fresh cranberries I had and left half for other purposes. Now I’m going to share what I did with these incredible sour babies which I first loath but slowly starting to take a liking for.

I baked Fresh Cranberry Orange Cookies! Imagine the burst of flavor as you bite into the cookie. I can imagine how the cookie would taste even before baking it. After baking it, I confirmed that I loved it more.


Getting ready to soak in the season of Christmas??!! Make some of these.

    Made these and only used 3/4 cup sugar. Oven was way too hot at 375 degrees. Burnt the entire first batch. Scooped 1 TBS of dough at a time. Set the oven to 350 degrees for only 8 minutes and they were delicious.
