Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.

  • In a large bowl, beat together the butter, white and brown sugars, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until the mixture is creamy and well blended. Beat in eggs, one at a time, and then gradually beat in the flour just until the mixture makes a soft dough. Stir in the pecans, rolled oats, and cranberries, and drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cookies are set and the edges are slightly brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Let the cookies cool for 1 minute on baking sheets before removing to wire racks to finish cooling. Glaze cookies while still a little warm.

  • Place the confectioners' sugar and orange juice in a microwave-safe bowl, and stir to dissolve the sugar. Stir in the orange zest and butter, and microwave on medium power until the butter melts and the mixture is warm, about 30 seconds. Stir the warm glaze until smooth, and drizzle over cookies.

These cookies are so far beyond delicious. Followed the recipe exactly except for the proportions of the glaze. I used 2/3 c. powdered sugar with just enough orange juice to make it into a thick liquid then added the orange peel. Butter is unnecessary and this was just the right amount for the number of cookies. Read More

These are delicious cookies. Except for using walnuts instead of pecans I followed the recipe. The orange glaze is what makes these cookies unlike most oatmeal cranberry cookies so don't skip that part. These are moist and chewy and still good a few days after making them. Read More

Yummy! I was snacking on some cranberries and thought- this would make a DELLICIOUS cookie! so i went on ahead onto allrecipes.com and looked it up and found this recipe I tried it out and my whole family finshed the plate! I personally don't favor nuts so I did not use the pecans and it satisfied my tastebuds anyhow! Read More

These are crazy yummy! Very easy to make. I took them to work and even the very picky ones loved them. The only thing that I would have changed is the amount of glaze I ended up with a lot left over. Give these cookies a shot you won't regret it! Read More

Mmmm! The biscuits in themselves are excellent. What is up with the glaze??? Like water consistency and enough to cover 3 batches. Next time I think I will halve the quantities of this and add a little more confectioner's sugar and zezt to make the glaze more flavourful if slightly thicker. Can't fault the biscuits!!! Read More

The dough was too thin...so I added another cup of oats. I substituted dried blueberries and added 2 t. of Chinese 5 spice. My orange was not all that juicy so instead of the fresh OJ I added the OJ from the Diary case and it worked just fine...it may have had a bit more flavor. Oh yes the cookies spread so much in my oven that I could only bake 9 on a standard cookie sheet. They are GREAT! Read More

I changed the recipe by adding the orange zest and some orange juice to the dough and omitted the glaze. These were a big hit and were easy to store. Read More
