Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  1. Love. Love. LOVED this! I didn't find this dry in the least. Instead there were lovely chewy and I adored the flavour. I didn't have any orange extract on hand so I used 1 Tbsp of orange juice and 1 tsp of orange marmalade to ensure I got the orange flavour. Also I halved this - Read more ...
  2. I rated this recipe 5 stars because: 1) its an excellent blend of flavors and textures and 2) its VERY customizable. I just made it with some alterations which turned out GREAT and made the recipe even healthier: 1/2 C Splenda instead of white sugar (still used brown sugar) 0.5 C butter 0.5 C canned - Read more ...
  3. Delicious! I did not have orange extract so I left that out. I also substituted 1/2 of the butter for pumpkin puree to save some calories and add an extra element of "fall" and they turned out really well.
  4. These are so good! Please note this is not a overly sweet cookie. It is nicely spiced soft and chewy from the oats and craisins (what I used) with a little crunch from the nuts with a slight orange boost. Tastes like Autumn in one little bite. We love them and will prepare them again - Read more ...
  5. I'd give these 5 stars for flavor and 4 stars for texture. I agree with other reviewers that they are slightly dry - not in a bad way at all I just prefer cookies like this to be a bit chewier and 'melt in your mouth'. To compensate I undercooked them but maybe next time - Read more ...
  6. Good cookie but definitely a cookie for an adult pallet. It is somewhat bitter with the cranberries which was good but the cookie itself was not sweet enough for my guests. I myself enjoyed the cookie but was outvoted. If I tried this recipe again I might add more sugar or consider an sweet orange - Read more ...
  7. I've made these twice. The first time I inadvertantly used baking soda instead of baking powder and they were great!!!! 5 stars!! The second time, I corrected the error and used baking powder. The results were not as nice. They weren't as chewy and I found them to be drier, still tasted good, but definitely - Read more ...
  8. These cookies were delicious. I added an extra tablespoon or so of brown sugar and used 1 teaspoon of OJ because I didn't have any orange extract. The flavor was good but a little lacking so I made an orange glaze (powdered sugar orange juice and cinnamon) which added exactly what was missing. They got - Read more ...
  9. These are awesome. Doubled the amount of orange extract, used half a cup of the cranberries and half a cup of raisins. I had to cook these about 12-14 minutes to get the "browned edges" effect, but it could just be my oven. Made them for poker night and they were demolished.
  10. Just made these and they are a perfectly wonderful cookie. The spice and orange are subtle and not overwhelming at all. Really great with a cup of tea. I used quick oats instead of rolled oats as it is what I had on hand so I cannot tell you how the cookies are with the - Read more ...
