READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by bugga

Delicious, delicate orange flavor! I love them, they're not too sweet and they're very satisfying. This recipe makes a BIG batch of cookies, and they'll stay fresh and moist for a long time. I hope you enjoy them. Originally taken from (with slight modifications).

These cookies are really, really good! I made them without the liqueur (didn't have any) & replaced it with orange extract. I split the dough in half before adding the cranberries. To half I added light raisins. The other half had the craisins & a handful of white chocolate chips! I used some of my sourdough starter "leftovers" in one batch & added 1 extra egg extra flour & oats to make a cookie dough. Really good!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla, orange zest and orange liquor. (NOTE: Use even more zest/liquor for a more intense orange flavor!).
  3. Combine the flour, baking soda and cinnamon; stir into the butter mixture.
  4. Stir in the oats and cranberries. NOTE: the batter will be very thick and might be difficult to stir, but do your best!
  5. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
