RECIPE: Cranberry Orange Nut Cookies

Virginia7074December 22, 2003

My sister started making these when she was in high school. They're like drops of cranberry bread. I really like them, but DH ate one & said that it's not a cookie he'd eat by the handful.

Cranberry Orange Nut Cookies

1/2 c. butter

1 c. sugar

3/4 c. brown sugar

1/4 c. milk

2 T. orange juice

1 egg

grated rind of one orange

3 c. flour

1 t. baking powder

1/4 t. soda

1/2 t. salt

1 c. chopped nuts

2-1/2 c. coarsely chopped cranberries

Cream butter & sugar. Add milk, oj, egg & rind; mix. Combine dry ingredients in bowl & add to wet. Add nuts & berries. Drop onto cookie sheets & bake at 375 for 10-15 min. Makes about 12 dozen.

They sound wonderful! I'd probably eat them by the handful. Thanks for posting the recipe.

"They're like drops of cranberry bread..."
So would I be correct in guessing that they're sort of chewey, as opposed to crunchy? If so, I'll whip up a batch!

They're even beyond chewey - I'd describe them as cakey. Very soft & they really do taste like cranberry orange bread. We (I) finished all of ours (mine). I may have to make more.

I'm always on the look out for a soft cakelike cookie to add to the ones we do for the Firemen to sell at their bingo-this one sounds like a winner-thx for posting Virginia.
