Candied Cranberry cookies

Candied Cranberry cookies
These are my contribution to the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.

To me, holiday cookies should be distinct from the-rest-of-the year cookies. Of course I’ll happily eat anything I’m offered, but what I want to make are spicy or minty or eggnoggy or extra decadent or winter fruity.

Thus, Candied Cranberry cookies.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cranberry jam*
  • 1/4 cup white sugar


  • Melt jam and butter together. Combine with flour.
  • Roll into cranberry sized spheres and then roll in sugar.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Makes about 8 dozen cookies.


* You can also use leftover cranberry sauce if you don’t mind the chunks, or lingonberry, red currant, or any other flavor of jam, really.
