Eggless Cranberry Orange Cookies

One of our favorite guests is unable to have eggs in any form.
Since we do a dessert buffet each evening, we needed a good cookie recipe and boy, did we find one! This was found on the website
These cookies have been such a hit, we have made them a constant on our evening sweet list.
We hope you enjoy them too.

1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups chopped cranberries
1 cups chopped nuts (optional–and we never add these)

Orange Glaze:
1 cup sifted confectioner sugar
Orange juice added until you achieve desired consistency


Preheat the oven to 300(see note below)
Cream together the sugar and butter in a large bowl.
Stir in milk, orange juice and sour cream.Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
Stir in cranberries and nuts.

Drop by rounded teasponfuls onto parchment papered cookie sheet. Bake for twenty minutes at 300.
Remove from cookie sheet, cool and glaze.

NOTE REGARDING THE OVEN TEMPERATURE: Fellow “Broad” Danielle Hanscomb of The Brampton Inn told me about baking cookies at this lower temperature for a longer time. What a great tip! We’ve never had a less than perfectly baked cookie!
