“A classic flavor combination, these are the best cranberry cookies I've ever had! The orange icing makes them absolutely perfect! These go on our Holiday Cookie Trays every year.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugars. Add egg, orange peel, and orange juice, mix thoroughly.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to wet ingredients, mixing only until combined.
  4. Stir in cranberries and nuts.
  5. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, on a cookie sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, and then cool on a rack about 30 minutes.
  6. In a small bowl stir all icing ingredients until smooth. Frost cookies. I like to put the icing into a small ziploc bag, snip off the corner, and pipe spirals onto the cookies.
