Lemon Cranberry Cookies

Chara Teh


These cookies are amazing! They are soft and refreshing. I had one as soon as my first tray set and am having to ration them now :S

A friend had described these cookies to me as she had them once and I went searching for a recipe. I found this, tweaked it a little, and made them today to try them out. She came over and had them and it seems they're better than she remembered. And my non-cookie-and-cake-and-sweets-eating host parents emptied my cookie jar in two days!

Take care not to overbake!
