Cranberry Orange Nut Cookies

I love cranberry and orange together, but have never seen it in a cookie recipe. I had to post this for safe keeping! (The prep time includes 30 minute chilling time)

ingredients

directions

  • Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Stir in walnuts and dried cranberries.
  • Whisk 1 cup sugar, applesauce, oil, orange zest and juice in a medium bowl until smooth. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Mix until well blended. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat.
  • Put the remaining 3 tablespoons sugar into a small flat-bottomed dish or pan. Roll the dough with floured hands (it will be very moist) into 1 1/2-inch balls, then roll in sugar to coat. Place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake the cookies until barely golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on the pan for 1 minute; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Although I did follow your recipe & didn't include any ingredients not listed, I did use an extra 1/4 cup of the dried cranberries & also was a bit more generous when it came to the orange zest, but other than that . . . Really, really enjoyed the use of whole wheat pastry flour in these & thought it paired very nicely with the fruit flavors! Many thanks for this great keeper recipe!
