These Gluten Free Cranberry Orange Cookies are soft and chewy. They are also bursting with flavour which leaves you wanting for more! Perfect for the festive holidays and other special occasions! The fact that you can make these gluten free is a bonus, but everyone will love them no matter what dietary requirements they have.
I’ve used both fresh and dried cranberries in this recipe, but if you just have dried version, don’t worry, just use those! The reason why I used fresh ones is because we had a few leftover from making a Christmas dinner.
You can also swap the cranberries for raisins, blueberries or other dried fruit of your choice.
