12 Days of Christmas Cookies: Cranberry Orange Cookies

Bust out those aprons – it’s cookie time! Between now and Christmas, I’ll be sharing 12 delicious cookie recipes for you to try. Share some with your neighbors, bring some to a cookie swap party, or keep them all for yourself. I won’t tell anyone. Promise.



Cranberry and orange is one of my favorite flavor combinations ever. I love it in scones and especially as a relish so, when I saw this recipe floating around on Pinterest, I knew that I had to try it. 

The deep red color of the dried cranberries keeps these cookies looking festive, the orange zest keeps them nice and fresh tasting – giving you a break from the other super sweet treats. 

The cookies are rolled in a mixture of sugar and orange zest just before baking which gives them that little extra sparkle that we are all looking for around the holidays. 

Hope you enjoy!
