Orange Cranberry Cookies

Orange cranberry cookies are a sweet and tart addition to your Christmas cookie tray. They’ll have everyone asking for more!

Guys, Christmas is just a couple of weeks away which means two things; 1. I’m ready to get my holiday cookie baking on and 2. I better get my Christmas shopping list in check.

Have you started your holiday shopping yet? Although I’ve definitely gone shopping on Black Friday, it’s so not my thing.

I pretty much loathe crowds, long lines and waking up at ridiculous o’clock to get a $5 fuzzy blanket from Kohls. Because if I’m being honest, that’s pretty much all I’ve ever purchased – well, aside from a cheeseburger for breakfast at Bob Evans.

Did you know you can totally do that?

I prefer to shop from my couch, in my pajamas. No pressure, lines, or crowds – although I must admit, I kinda missed that fuzzy blanket and gooey breakfast burger.

This year is Elle’s first Christmas and we couldn’t be more excited. She absolutely loves to shred paper, (Santa’s bringing lots of board books) so we think she’ll be a natural at gift unwrapping.


Although I’m definitely not into shopping with the masses, I am into baking cookies and lots of them. And first up on my must-make cookie list is this glazed orange cranberry cookies recipe made with loads of orange zest and fresh cranberries.

And if you’re at all like me, you might just have a few bags of cranberries stashed in your freezer.

I am a big fan of the sweet and tart combination of orange and fresh cranberries. From cranberry orange scones to homemade cranberry sauce with Grand Marnier (yes, I totally went there), I’m craving this vibrant duo all winter long. 

And let me tell ya, these cookies are no exception.

They’re the perfect addition to your holiday spread and I’m 100% certain Santa will be filling your stocking with extra goodies if you leave him a plate of these on Christmas Eve.
