A friend of mine gave me this recipe last year, and I couldn’t wait to try it. Unfortunately I couldn’t find cranberries at the grocery store until the beginning of November, so I had to wait a while! The recipe uses orange juice concentrate to add a hint of citrus to the cookies, which really brings out the flavor of the cranberries.

  1. I actually don’t really care for cranberries but I’ve never tried them in a cookie so who knows, I may just fall in love! I do like the added citrus ingredient. That tends to bring out flavors so much more and make them “burst”!

  2. I can’t wait to try these. I know what you mean about finding the cranberries in the stores – I kept looking back in Oct. and couldn’t find any either. Finally Aldi started having them a couple of weeks ago – beginning of Nov. and they are a really good price there, too. I have been stocking up as I also use them in my juicer. Thanks for the cookie recipe – going to try it out soon.
