Cranberry-Orange Cookies With Orange Juice Frosting

A Marvelous Citrusy & Nutty Offering by Eartha…Mmm!


Cookie recipes appear in thousands of soft, chewy or crisp variations. This one’s special. These cookies are citrusy, nutty and soft in the center with a slightly crunchy edge. Enjoy this treat with a spiced hot tea.

This sweet frosting is made with icing sugar, freshly squeezed orange juice, and grated orange peel.  It’s absolutely  delicious! As tempting as it is to lick the frosting off the cookie as soon as it’s ready (it’s too good not to), you’ll be doing your taste buds a favour by savoring the sweet combination of cookie and decadent, creamy citrus icing. - Gift Boxed Cookies (2)
