SHF/IMBB Cookie Swap: Cranberry-Orange Drop Cookies
The creative minds behind Sugar High Friday and Is My Blog Burning came up with an excellent idea to help prepare for the holidays--a virtual cookie swap. My contribution, Cranberry-Orange Drop Cookies, have become a holiday staple since I found the recipe in Bon Appetit 3 years ago.
Though the actual recipe calls for a bizillion ingredients, I've defintely added and subtracted in the past--you can replace the dried cranberried with more fresh ones, pistachios with all walnuts, lime juice and zest for the orange. I like to chop the fresh cranberries and the nuts in my food processor, but if you like larger chunks you may want to chop by hand (I end up with cranberries flying all over my kitchen if I do that--but you're probably more careful than me).
The full recipe is here: Cranberry-Orange Drop Cookies. Enjoy!
