12 Days of Christmas Cookies, Day 3 : Cranberry Lemon Cookies – Super-Soft, Super-Easy Drop Cookie Recipe
If you like soft cookies, you’ll a-d-o-r-e these Cranberry Lemon Cookies. It’s the pudding mix in the cookie dough that gives them a velvety texture on the inside. Between the cranberries and lemon, they've got just enough "bite" to give these really, really flavorful.
And here’s another tip for this easy drop cookie recipe if you want colorful cookies for your holidays: sprinkle a few extra chopped dried cranberries on the cookie tops before baking them so that the red color stands out.
Prep time: 10 minutes (plus glazing)
