Cranberry Cookies

Cranberry Cookies

These cranberry cookies are sweet, tart, nutty, and best of all, easy to make. They have a subtle orange flavor that complements the tangy cranberries nicely, but if you like the combination of orange and cranberry as much as we do, replace the vanilla extract with orange extract and add the zest of one orange.
