The best cookies I've ever made. It's takes a bit of time but it's worth it. My only suggestion would be to make the dough first, let it cool for the 5 or 24 hours and then make the filling. :D

Love these cookies. Great cranberry and orange flavor and not overly sweet.

These cookies are definitely amazing. My only complaint is that they tend to crumble.... I'm sure there's an adjustment you can make to the recipe, but I would have no idea where to start. I guess that I will just have to eat them all before they have a chance to crumble!
