Easy Cranberry Orange Cookies Recipe

Easy Cranberry Orange Cookies Recipe – These cranberry orange cookies are nice to have during the holidays, but don’t expect them to stay around long. These orange-flavored cranberry cookies are tart and delicious, not to mention beautiful. Not really a favorite of kids.

Servings: 48



1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped cranberries
½ cup chopped walnuts (Optional)


1 ½ cups confectioners’ sugar
3 tablespoons orange juice
½ teaspoon grated orange zest


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Make the cookies: Cream butter, white sugar, and brown sugar in a mixing bowl until smooth. Beat in egg until well blended. Mix in orange juice and zest.

Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Stir flour mixture into the butter mixture until combined. Mix in cranberries and walnuts until evenly distributed.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake in the preheated oven, switching racks halfway through, until edges are golden, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Meanwhile, make the glaze: Mix together confectioners’ sugar, orange juice, and zest in a small bowl until smooth.

Spread glaze over the tops of the cooled cookies; let stand until set.
