Cranberry Orange Cookies - Jar Mix

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Ducky

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.
