Elyse's Cranberry Orange Cookies






















When I saw these cookies over at Confectionary Creations, I knew I had to make them. The perfect cookies to bake for my mum on Mother's Day.

They were really delicious! Light, chewy and almost cakey in consistency. The cranberries and orange peel really enhanced the flavour of these cookies. I might even add a bit more orange peel next time.

















Thank you for the recipe Elyse!


Update: Mum gave them the thumbs up. She really loved them!

p.s. just noticed I have subliminally taken the same photo as Elyse, well just about anyway.It must have stuck in my mind.

  10. My friend Jo-An makes a version of this with chunks of white chocolate and cashews. They're the kind of cookie you can have about one of per year -- but I am a lemon/cranberry addict, so it seems like I'll have to give these a go!

  14. This is the first time I have tried this combination before Diann, I seem to have missed out on something that everyone else loves.

    They do actually have a bit of
    texture like scones Pepsakoy.

    Thanks Elyse, they are so good. I am very glad I found your blog :)

    Pity I can't just pass you one Ricki! The leftover cookies were scoffed at work today. I left them in the staff room, came back an hour later and they were finished.

    Hi Soma, I really have missed out on this flavour, but I will return to it again.

    Hi CC It was nice when you can across a little juicy, chewy cranberry. Yum!

    I hope you enjoy them Beth :)

    Thank you Parker :)

    Hi A & N, I just came off the phone with my mum and she has eaten 2 more of them and is fearing for her waistline. He he! She does love them though.

    Hey Tanita, White Chocolate and Cashew sounds amazing. I think I could scoff far more often than just once a year. I am going to scribble this one down!

    Thanks Anne. They didn't spread much at all during cooking, but were lovely and light.

    Hi Lisa, Go on then girl! I know any cookies you made would be very, very tasty :)

    Thank you Andrea. What a lovely thing to say :)
