This is the best biscuit ever. I have made them with cranberries and ginger, and also pecans and ginger. This has saved my life, my husband went to buy 8 packets of fresh cranberries, he came back with 8 packets of dried! I just cannot understand why people are complaining. I make mine in my Kenwood, you have to give it plenty of time to become creamy before adding the flour, a spoonful at a time. Then work it in the Kenwood till all the flour is combined, then add the extras. It really does work and they are delicious. Thank you Taste of Home.
Made these last year, they were delicious!! Will be making them again this year, one batch will have mini choc. chips as I have a friend who does not like dried fruit.
I made these according to the recipe but substituted a tsp. of orange extract and tsp.of dried orange peel for the ginger. I also made a glaze of powdered sugar, milk and orange extract and drizzled the cookies after they cooled. They are tender and absolutely delicious. I will be making this for Christmas.
I'm sorry to have to say that this is the worst recipe I've ever worked with. The outcome was an awful cookie - it tasted like flour in my mouth. I followed the recipe exactly, had no problem mixing the dough. Kept it in the fridge for almost two days, had no problem slicing them. But the good fortune ended there. I made two logs, I will toss the other one. A waste of butter and cranberries. Perhaps Tasteofhome kitchen crew might do a run of them and see if something is missing from the recipe.
I made these and brought them to work today. I think the crumbly texture of the cookie and the tart of the cranberry go nicely together. I also love the color of the final result.I did have to cook these for about 15 minutes, flip, and cook a couple more minutes, but that could have been from the dish I was using (not a true cookie dish) as well as the oven itself. The bottom was a perfect golden brown. I would recommend letting them cool completely before moving them, or if you have to flip them, wait a couple moments to let it rest. I broke a cookie or two like that.Like "gramcayo" I think these would be a wonderful addition to a Christmas cookie plate.
These are wonderful and look great. I've added them to my christmas cookie plate. I didn't have dried cranberries and added frozen. Delicious
This cookie is too dry and tasteless. When mixing the batter it would not come together. 1 egg yolk. Is this correct? A waste of ingredients.
anyone out there make cookies with gumdrops in them? I saw it somewhere tonight and cannot find it again...
