Dotted with cranberries, orange peel and vanilla chips, these cookies are so colorful and fun to eat. They look lovely on a dessert tray and would be a great addition to your Christmas cookie lineup. -Pat Habiger, Spearville, Kansas

I dug out a 2008 issue of "Best Loved Cookies & Bars" to start my holiday baking. Found this recipe and made them today. I have never felt the need to write a review, until now. These cookies are yummy! and I'm not a star baker :) The orange zest brings all the ingredients together. If I can make these cookies so can you !!!! Enjoy and thanks Pat for sharing your recipe. Now, I think I'll have to make more, cause my husband just walked out with 2 dozen of them for meeting :) Happy Holidays !!!!

This recipe is excellent. My son's teenage friends "beg" me to make these. I also made them for my mother-in-law to take to her 50th High School reunion (10 dozen) and there wasn't a one left. I'm making them today to take to her house for Thanksgiving tomorrow. Excellent, excellent recipe!!!!!
