I have made these cookies a few times. The first time I made them with the fresh cranberries and it was a lot of work and the cookie did not have the sweetness I was hoping for. The second time I made these cookies I substituted orange flavored Craisins (sweetened dried cranberries) for the fresh cranberries. After I did that I got rave reviews on the cookies. They are now my mother-in-law’s favorite cookie. After the cranberry change I would give this cookie recipe 5 stars.

Excellent cookies, full of flavor and original! I changed a few things though: I wanted a stronger orange taste, so I doubled the orange juice (and adjusted the amount of flour accordingly) and quadrupled the orange zest. I used fresh cranberries that I half-mashed, but used a bit less than a cup. I also added extra nutmeg and some clove. I baked the cookies a bit longer (about 10-12 minutes) and they came out chewy but not limp. Thank you for this recipe!

I will not make these cookies again. I use fresh cranberries and they did not taste good and the glaze was not good. I did follow the recipe to the tee.
