These were very good. Not your basic boring cookie. The dried cranberry and orange combination gave it a little "bang". I would make these again. I brought them to work & my co-workers ate them all and seemed to enjoy them a lot.

These cookies are fantastic! I have this exact recipe from somewhere else. I made them at Christmas for several different groups of people and everyone raved about them. They were the first cookies to disappear from the tray. I will be making these again.
