1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups sweetened dried cranberries

3/4 cup chopped walnuts

1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest

Glaze

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 to 2 tablespoons orange juice

 

 *Substitute 1 cup canned pumpkin.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or lightly grease; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine sugar and butter in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in bowl. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture; beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in cranberries, walnuts and orange zest.

  4. STEP 4

    Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 11-13 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine powdered sugar and enough orange juice in bowl for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle glaze over cookies.

Tip #1

- For cranberry lovers, substitute 1 cup fresh cranberries, cut in half, for the sweetened dried cranberries.

Tip #2

- Leftover canned pumpkin can be used to flavor ice cream. To each cup of vanilla ice cream, add 1/3 cup canned pumpkin, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, a pinch of ginger and a pinch of cloves; stir to combine. Place in freezer container with tight fitting lid; store in freezer.

This cookie is AWESOME!! Everybody loved them. I made some with and without the drizzle. They have been requested again this year by my kids and family.
