This is posted per request. The recipe is from the "Gifts for the Cookie Jar" cookbook. I have not yet made these. Times are guesstimates for assembling the jar mix. Note: dried orange peel is generally available in the spice section of a grocery store.

I made these and they were flat as can be. I even chilled the dough and they were still flat! So disappointed.

I made these yesterday for my sons rowing crew. Needless to say, they are all gone now!! The boys loved them. I added 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to the recipe and cut the sugar down just a little. Thanks for sharing!

SUPER! I loved making this - made it in the jar first and then followed the cooking instructions! The flavour was lovely, a wee bit too sweet for me, so I think I will leave out a bit of the sugar next time, as the cranberries were quite sweet too. I loved the addition of the dried orange peel - I used my own sun-dried orange peel for this. A lovely gift idea and a very nice biscuit (Cookie) too! Thanks Ducky! Made for PAC Autumn 2007. FT:-)
