    Really tasty, different cookie with some zing! I also left out the cinnamon and added more lemon... orange zest could be nice for change, too.

    I really like this cookie - I did modify a bit and make it more about lemon and cranberry and took out the cinnamon and added zest of 1 whole lemon, 1/2 t of almond extract and juice of 1/2 a lemon and I love the zing. Chopped pecans or some pine nuts for crunch would also be a nice touch....This is one I will come back to again - so quick and tasty.

    Wonderful cookies! I doubled the recipe to use up a whole 12oz bag of cranberries and used 1/2 unsalted butter and 1/2 Crisco baking stick (what I had on hand). The only other change I made was to use walnuts instead of pecans because that's what I had on hand. I coarsly chopped half of the cranberries and finely chopped the rest along with the nuts in my food processor. I left some of the cookies un-iced because they are awesome either way and my hubby loved them plain. Using a non-stick cookie sheet, I didn't need to grease the pan. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
