Orange Cranberry Cookies

One of my favorite flavor combinations is orange and cranberry. The Cranberry Bread recipe that I make quite often during the Winter months, has a burst of citrus flavor with fresh oranges. These Orange Cranberry Cookies have definitely jumped to the top of the list with delicious flavor.

The cookies are soft yet have a little crispy coating with a combination of sugar and orange zest. And the cranberries add a nice difference in texture. They also go together in a snap and the recipe gives you about 3 dozen cookies.

The flaky buttery flavor also reminded me of the Citrus Drop Cookies that I shared last year, made with Blood Oranges and Meyer Lemons.

The produce right now at Walmart is bursting with flavor! The Citrus Event that is going on in stores right now features these Navel Oranges, which are part of the 100% freshness guarantee – if you’re not completely satisfied with their produce, just bring back your receipt and they will give you a full refund no questions asked and no need to bring back the purchase.  I’m pretty sure you are going to be satisfied, but it’s also really nice to know that if you aren’t, Walmart offers a guarantee.
