Old English Lemon-Cranberry Cookies

Rated as 3.43 out of 5 Stars

"Fall cuisine is typically marked by what many consider to be more traditional and even somewhat austere flavors. Fall cuisine usually boasts 'Old World' flavors such as cloves, walnuts, and cranberries. These are flavors one might have envisioned a puritan family enjoying fresh off the Mayflower. At first bite, the robust ‘kick' and bold expression of these little treats will be sure to impress and delight, and possibly even allow one to reminisce on the joys of autumn, from the fading leaves to the memories of a Thanksgiving past."

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets.
  2. Mix the flour, sugar, baking soda, walnuts, and cloves together in a large mixing bowl. Beat the egg, applesauce, lemon juice, vanilla, cranberries, lemon zest, and butter together in a separate bowl with an electric hand mixer; pour into the flour mixture and mix well. Drop spoonfuls of the dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, about 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with the confectioners' sugar to serve.

Great bold flavor. Because the cookies are so fluffy and don't really brown, I think next time I'll bake the batter in a loaf pan - it tastes more like yummy bread.

Loved it. Found this recipe while searching for something to do with the walnuts and cranberries I had. Changed a couple things. Did not add cloves. Had no applesauce so instead I used another 1...

I made this recipe based on the fact that I love the ingredients. However, the cookie just didn't do it for me. Too cake-like. I don't like clove so I used half the amount--it didn't help. I...
