    Very tasty cookie! Didn't have vanilla chips so I substituted with butterscotch and they turned out great. Next time I'll double the batch to keep some dough for my freezer!

    This could well be my new favorite Xmas cookie recipe.

    What a pleasant "Christmas-sy" flavor! Loved the addition of orange zest! I also used dried cranberries because my fresh ones weren't so fresh anymore and they came out great! I couldn't keep these on our cookie tray at work! (They tend to get dry by the end of the day, though...so you may want to throw a piece of saran wrap over them if they are going to 'sit out'.) Also I baked mine for only 9 minutes and they were perfect. Thanks as usual MizzNezz. Holiday or no holiday...your recipes rock!


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
