Cranberry Cookies with Browned Butter Glaze
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
Makesabout 4-1/2 dozen
Absolutely love these cookies. Sorry some reviewers didn't like them. I did NOT use orange juice, instead I zested 2 fresh oranges and used the zest. I think fresh orange zest along with the tart cranberries just made the flavor of this recipe pop. Probably definitely want the glaze. I made more of a frosting and applied that to the cookies. Besure to brown the butter well.
Very disappointed in the cranberry cookie recipe. I followed the recipe to the letter, but found it to be flat-tasting. The ingredients were expensive, time-consuming to prepare. I took them to a party, a few were eaten, but not all. I took the rest home and threw them away.
My family and I love the cookies, a little tart and sweet is a perfect combination for us. I did have to bake it a little longer than the 10 to 12 minutes the recipe states, nevertheless, I plan to make them again around Thanksgiving. YUM!
These cookies are AWFUL soft and cake like Going to toss them in the trash
These were very good. We enjoyed them for the holidays.
Very nice cookies. 12 minutes was the correct time for me also. I enjoyed the very tasty glaze on them. Next time I think I will use semi sweet chocolate chips instead of the white chips.
These were good. I liked the fresh cranberries but unlike some reviewers, I think the cookies definitely need the glaze or else the the cranberries are a little too tart. I baked mine for 12 minutes and one batch was perfect but the other 2 batches were undercooked. Still good though.
Very very good. I let them bake for 12 minutes and they were perfect. Soft with a good texture. I know when I take these into work they will not last long. I also leave a copy of the recipe for anyone to use. I didn't do the glaze, but I didn't miss it, maybe next time. I also zested the orange and added that to the recipe and it gave it a little more zing I think.
I think I have a new favorite cookie! I did have to add another two minutes to the baking time. These cookies are moist and flavorful, and although I did use pecans, I think the cookies would be equally good with walnuts. When I made the glaze, I used orange juice instead of water, which added a little extra zing to the glaze. I also increased the amount of the cranberries, although I did not use the entire bag. I have already been asked twice for the recipe. You have to work fast when you drizzle the glaze over the cookies, but then, if I hadn't already slopped some over the edge of the pan, I could have put it back on the burner to warm it again. :)
These are the best cranberry cookies I have ever made.
