For me nothing gets me more in the Christmas spirit than the smell of oranges. These Cranberry and Orange cookies are packed with lots of orange flavor which makes them such a special treat for holidays. Chocolate couldn’t miss either as chocolate is my favorite ingredient and must be present for any occasion.
These cookies are very flavorful, soft and chewy and have an amazing texture, a true delight for your friends or family. Enjoy!
