How to Make Cranberry Orange Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter & sugars, until smooth. Beat in egg, until well blended. Mix in 1 tsp. orange zest and 2 Tbs. orange juice. Combine next three items; stir into the orange mixture. Mix in cranberries, and if using, walnuts, until evenly distributed. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets. Cookies should be spaced at least 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake for about 12 minutes, in the reheated oven, until edges are golden. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together 1/2 tsp. orange zest, 3 Tbs. orange juice, and confectioners' sugar, until smooth. Spread over tops of cooled cookies or drizzle over them. Let stand, until set. Makes 48 (4 dozen) cookies.
