Got the recipe from a friend and I absolutely LOVE it. The cookies have just enough spice flavor and are soft and chewy. The cranberries and raw sugar make them super festive! Wrapped in a clear bag and tied with a red ribbon, they make a great small gift to give.
love these cookies i plan to make them for my family
GREAT cookie! I put in more cranberries and orange zest than in the recipe and really love the flavor. Especially good for Fall.
These are outstanding. I made them for Christmas and everyone wanted the recipe!
I made this recipe for the first time last week and the cookies were gone the same day! Since then I've made it 4 more times and shared the cookies with several people. One person told me it was the best cookie he'd ever eaten. This is easily a five star recipe and one of my all time favorites. It is easy to make and tastes delicious.
This is a delicious recipe. It was very easy to make and turned out great!
made on Saturday gone by Wednesday, everyone loved them. I will make again.
These were a huge hit with my family for our Christmas celebration. Absolutely one of the best cookies I have ever eaten. Looked just like the picture, too.
this recipe was GREAT! Everybody that tried them has loved them. I will definitely make them again. I added extra cranberries to mine. DELICIOUS.
I made the molasses cranberry crinkle cookies, and they were too moist to roll into balls and then into the sugar. Can you check your recipe and make sure an ingredient might be missing?
Love the new way of showing the Nutrition facts instead of them being in very small print at the bottom of the page.
This recipe was a hit! Everyone loved these cookies! These little cookies had so much flavor packed into one bite you won't want to stop eating them! These would be really great to give out for Holiday Gifts! Amazing!
Yum! I love molasses cookies and the addition of the orange and cranberry make them irresistible.
The best molasses cookie I've ever made. They come out just like the picture and taste great. The cranberries and orange zest add a nice flavor. A keeper, I'll be making these throughout the year, not just during the holidays!
This cookie is very tasty. I brought them to a cookie party and they were a big hit.

This year, my grandson Clark is 3 years old, so I wanted to make some cookies that he would love to eat and would find to be fun, too. These adorable Powdered Sugar Snowmen Cookies are just the ticket.
Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
