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 Orange Cranberry 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.
