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!

Enjoy!

How to Make Lemon Cranberry Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare three baking sheets (for a smoother flow in and out of the oven).
  2. Cream butter and sugars till light. Add pudding mix and beat till well incorporated.
  3. Add eggs one at a time, beating till smooth with each addition.
  4. Sift flour and baking soda and stir into mixture using a spatula. Fold in cranberries.
  5. Drop mixture onto baking sheets, leaving a little room as these cookies spread. Bake for 10 minutes or till a hint of browning around the edges is visible.
  6. Remove tray from oven and lift sheet off, allowing cookies to cool and set on the sheet for a bit before transferring them to a wire rack.
