Make It Happen

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Break and place cookie dough cubes 2” apart on a greased baking sheet.

Step 2

Bake 13-17 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets and transfer to cooling racks. Let cool completely.

Step 3

While the cookies are cooling, place dried cranberries into a small bowl. Sprinkle sugar over them until coated. Set aside.

Step 4

In a mixing bowl, add powdered sugar, vanilla, and orange juice. Mix until smooth. If icing is too thick, thin it out by adding more orange juice.

Step 5

Spread the icing over the cooled cookies. Finally, sprinkle on the sugared cranberries.

Step 6

Once the icing has dried, store cookies in an airtight container. Put them in a single layer to avoid squishing the icing or add parchment paper between multiple layers.
