I made these several years ago and everyone loved them. Planning to make these again this week but am going to try layering the dough, rolling out, and using cookie cutters to make shaped cookies.
Everyone raved about these.
Love how pretty these are! I made these for a school fundraiser. Perfect stand out cookie. Not only looked good, but tastes delicious too.
This recipe should have 5 stars. It is just scrumptious. I think the amount of orange zest is perfect and such a compliment to thecranberry layers. Made these for Christmas and gave to many. Have already had 5 requests for this recipe. Thank you Land O Lakes.
Made this recipe for a cookie exchange @ church. Liked the taste of the cookie but would use a little less orange zest; it seemed to overwhelm the other flavors. Put in freezer as i did not want to wait the 4 hours for the dough to chill. Recipe did not make 7-1/2 dozen, however, so made 2 batches. Exchange is tomorrow night; will post results later.

We rush home from daycare, singing “Wheels on the Bus” as many times as it takes to keep him entertained on the 10-minute car ride. It’s the same song and dance when we get home, while his daddy finishes up work and I’m hectically trying to empty the dishwasher, make dinner and keep our little guy from hiding the dog food between the couch cushions.

Everyone’s first thought for a sports party is savory appetizers – but let’s not forget about the best part of a meal…dessert! Whether you’re feeding hungry kids or hungry friends, a sweet treat is always a welcome addition to your tailgating spread. More ...
