Makes a great, light, cake-like cookie. I use the food processor to chop the cranberries (life is just too short!).

I must say that I did not care much for this recipe. I found it lacked any real flavor aside from the cranberries. It was also fairly labor intensive. Therefore I strongly urge you to find another recipe before attempting this one.


I tested these cookies out before Thanksgiving with my cousin and my husband. We thought these cookies were great. I actually used half and half instead of milk (only because I was out of milk) and I think this made them "creamier" in texture. They are very easy to make. Just use the idea of processing the cranberries. I will definitely make these for our Thanksgiving feast!


We found this on the back of a Christmas library book called "Cranberry Christmas". The only differences were 2 Tblsp lemon juice instead of orange juice and 1 cup brown sugar. I also substituted half n' half for the milk and added 2Tblsp butter since there wasn't quite enough to cream the sugar. My version was wonderful and the kids even loved them!
