These cookies are fragrant, delicious and festive for the holiday season. Cranberry and orange is one of my favorite flavor combinations so this had to happen in my life. These are lovely with melted white chocolate drizzled across the top to dress them up but I frankly like them a bit better without. Easy peasy tasty cookies!
