The week of Christmas is upon us. We are reaching the point where Amazon Prime can’t even rescue me. Heaven help us all!
Nothing says Christmas like the combo of orange and cranberry. I don’t know who made this rule, but if you want to flavor anything around Christmas, it MUST be orange and cranberry.
I saw these cranberry orange cookies on Pinterest and needed to make them. They little flecks of orange zest sealed the deal. Super easy and fun and super Christmas-y!
This recipe uses on of my favorite tricks. Making a sugar infused with citrus zest. In this case it is orange, obviously. But making lemon, lime or grapefruit sugar is awesome also. It’s a great way to add more layers of flavor.
Just roll your beautiful dough balls into the sugar before baking. It gives them a little bit of crispiness to the outside with a wonderful flavor.
I couldn’t stop eating these. They were magnificent. None of them made it to the neighbors. Oops!
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!
