Top Review by Michelle S.

These cookies are wonderful! A little too sweet for me, but my husband is absolutely crazy about them. I did end up adding about 1/3 c more flour as my batter was way too moist. I baked them the 12 minutes. I used just over 1 c. powdered sugar for the glaze and still had a good bit leftover after dipping the tops of the cookies into it. I also added asome natural orange extract to the glaze to kick it up some and to play off the cranberry flavor from the cookie. I also got 45 cookies from the recipe.
