Orange Cranberry Cookies Recipe

Orange Cranberry Cookies Recipe – Delicious holiday cookies, these orange cranberry cookies are infused with orange zest and dried cranberries, then topped with an easy orange icing and more cranberries.


Servings: 20


1 pouch Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1/4 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup cream cheese, room temperature
1 egg
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/2 teaspoon orange extract
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 cup powdered sugar
~ 2 teaspoons orange juice
dried cranberries, chopped


Heat the oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, add the sugar cookie mix, butter, cream cheese, egg, orange peel and orange extract. Beat until the mixture comes together and makes a soft cookie dough.

With a spatula, fold in the dried cranberries.

Using a medium size ice-cream scoop, drop cookie dough on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 12 minutes or until puffed and slightly golden.

Remove from the oven and cool completely.

When cooled, make the icing.

In a small bowl combine the powdered sugar with enough orange juice to make a spreadable icing.

Spoon a little on top of the cookies and let it spread all by itself. Sprinkle chopped cranberries over the cookies.
